Trump Has a Really Big Budget Proposal

Trump Has a Really Big Budget Proposal

"Devolving the federal government's funding responsibility to cash-strapped states and municipalities will leave too many projects and jobs behind", said Larry I. Willis, president of the Transportation Trades Department of the AFL-CIO.

The White House's budget proposal presses for new spending on infrastructure and a border wall.

Murray went on to say that Mulvaney said that he wouldn't have voted for Trump's deal that signed last week in order to increase spending caps by around $300 billion in more than two years. "Naturally, he would vote for the president's FY19 budget that he released yesterday", Burris said.

Presidential budget proposals are effectively no more than suggestions for Congress.

The budget includes block grant funding for state Medicaid and Medicare programs.

U.S. President Donald Trump expressed willingness Monday to impose "a reciprocal tax" against countries having a trade surplus with the United States, including allies such as Japan. The proposal bears President Trump's vision of an America armed for war, paid for in part by an America that doesn't prioritize education.

Major League sports organizations weigh in on WV sports betting bill
Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association have both come out against the bill as it is written. Current MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred spoke briefly on the subject of sports betting several times in 2017.

The blueprint for the 2019 fiscal year abandons the long-held Republican goal of balancing the federal budget within a decade, with deficits projected to peak in 2020 and persist into the foreseeable future amid an aggressive and costly defense buildup. But a White House spokeswoman said "everything is on the table" in the infrastructure plan and the gas tax has "pros and cons". Trump's plan would require states and local governments to come up with a larger share of infrastructure money, reducing federal outlays. He was also pleased with a $50 billion provision for rural infrastructure improvements.

"The Trump budget not only abandons America's global leadership overseas in combating one of the most urgent challenges facing humanity, but abandons our children at home to the mounting dangers of a changing climate", the Natural Resources Defense Council wrote in a statement.

"His budget would mean more than 200,000 seniors, families, and people with disabilities could lose their rental assistance that they get today, putting them at immediate risk of evictions and potentially homelessness", Yentel said.

Mulvaney was not breaking any news during Tuesday's budget hearing; he said the same thing Sunday on a talk show.

In a tweet Tuesday, Trump asserts that Democrats and Republicans must act now to provide legal protections to young "Dreamer" immigrants in the US illegally.
