It would seem that just about everybody is opposing President Trump's budget bill, with some in his own party calling it "dead on arrival".
This is the President the people elected and the government they wanted, so I fully support passing his budget bill "as is". Let's see if this form of government works or not.
What do you think? What will happen if we pass President Trump's budget as is?
Can't remember the last Presidential budget that wasn't DOA. If it passes as is I'm pretty sure Hell will freeze over.
It won't happen, it is dead on arrival once it reaches the Senate. These fellows do not want to return to their constituents having to explain how they sat idly by while they allowed Trump to screw them all.
Not just major changes to the script but an entirely new drama.
The question isn't what is going to happen, but do you think it should pass as is?
Presidents are not dictators. Of course it should not pass on its own. He is not the only elected official responsible for the budget.
Has it ever occurred to you that sometimes you offer something that is far off base of what you are hoping for so that once compromise is completed you are closer to your goal than you would have been if you had simply said what it was you wanted in the first place?
This is the president who was put in office in spite of falling 3 million votes short. That's our system but that doesn't change the final count. Personally, I'm grateful for the agencies and offices that are watching him like a hawk because the evidence so far is that he has no idea how to do the job. Good luck to all of us.
People should get the government they voted for.
Still refusing to admit that it wasn't short of any votes at all, huh? Somebody obviously counted wrong, probably in California - good thing we're looking into voter fraud, isn't it?
President Trump's Taxpayer First Budget
President Trump's first proposed budget shows respect for the people who pay the bills. The administration's proposal reverses the damaging trends from previous administrations by putting our nation's budget back into balance and reducing our debt through fiscally conservative principles, all the while delivering on President Trump's campaign promise not to cut Social Security retirement or Medicare. The budget's combination of regulatory, tax, and welfare reforms will provide opportunities for economic growth and creation.
Doesn't look like people are reading the budge plan for themselves. Taxpayers want to see a budget that balances. It is our fiscal responsibility to have a balanced budget for the sake of our children and their children...
A 3% economic growth rate is returning to the normal growth this great country has had historically since WWII for sure, or much longer. The growth rate (1.5%, 1.9%) under Obama never came close to a normal growth and has left us with $20 trillion dollars in debt.
The difference between say a 2% growth rate and 3% growth is 50%.
We can always move the goal post to a 4% economic growth for 100%.

Will Trump make a good president?

A report from the Congressional Research Service finds there is no correlation in American history between economic growth and the lowering of taxes but that lower taxes on the rich do increase the wealth gap (how surprising). Given the complete lack of evidence for this belief why is it still...
