    Everyone knew this atrocious scheme by Donald Trump was coming sooner or later, and we must Thank the Good LORD “Powerhouse” Nancy Pelosi and her new Progressive Democratic House of Representatives were voted in during the last midterm election and can now OBSTRUCT & Halt Trump’s and his Russian Republican’s insane Russian style communist fascist budget madness, a pre-meditated plot to transfer trillions of our hard earned money from we the people, and hand it over to the filthy rich who prey among us and who have NOT EARNED it:

      Please provide a resource that backs up your complaint. The new budget is complicated, and clearly explained in regards to the Presidents thought on how to not cut SS but find corruption and misuse of funds, as well as the cuting cost of drugs to save SS funds...  Do some research.

        Actually, Trump did propose massive cuts to both Medicare and Social Security in his new budget after promising not to touch them.

    Your fear mongering continues to run high on emotion and fails woefully to include fact.

      Oh it's an absolute FACT that Trump and Russian Republicans are out to get our Medicare and Social Security, over a TRILLION in CUTS to these vital programs are included in Bozo's abominable budget and if you're not frightened by this dreadfully dark pseudo-presidency by now, I can't help you:

      The FACTS speak for themselves, the unconscionable ASSAULT on our Health-Care System by Mr. trump and Russian Republicans CONTINUES and is non-stop, an unforgivable SIN for which they will pay a hefty political price in 2020 and monumental moral price when the Good Lord calls these dregs to appear before him: It's your choice to believe the truth or the 72 year old string puppet in our oval office who spews nothing but hate and falsehoods like we've never witnessed before:

        Yes, the FACTS speak for themselves, and no amount of false rhetoric or hate will change them:

        "If you add up the proposed Medicare changes in President Trump’s 2020 budget, it looks like he would cut the program by $845 billion over the next decade. That’s generated outrage from Democrats, but a closer look suggests that the reductions are much smaller, most would affect providers rather than beneficiaries"

        "The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget does a nice job walking through the math, and concludes that the net reduction in Medicare spending would be between $515 billion and $575 billion, not $845 billion."

        "While even $515 billion is a lot of money, very little would directly affect beneficiaries."

        "To start, Trump is moving about one-third of the money--$269 billion—into a different section of the budget. He would not reduce spending for these two programs".

        So, the FACT of it all is that it is mostly just more fear-mongering - "THE SKY IS FALLING" from liberals trying to get a gullible public to believe a lie.  One which you appear to have swallowed whole and repeated in your efforts to smear the President again. 

        Better luck next time.  It would be nice if even one of your sensationalist posts actually presented the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. … 8b58a91d07

          I'm not even sure how to respond to this but I do know one thing, over a TRILLION Dollars in CUTS to Medicare and Social Security would do nothing but devastate Medicare and Social Security programs along with Medicaid: Everyone knew this atrocious attempt at sabotaging retirement plans was coming and it's now here just like the devastating effects of climate change::

          I don't see a word from Bozo Trump's creepy mouth about INCREASING spending in our Budget for our Hard Working Class, or ENHANCING Medicare or Social Security and you know WHY? Because he and the Trumps could care less about you, your family or anyone else as long as they benefit legally or unlawfully from our oval office and they tell us that almost every single day;

                  With Donald Trump DESTROYING what's left of the Socialist Communist Loving Russian Republican Party? Nobody on the Dem side should become complacent, but the cards say Dems will absolutely maintain control of the house to PRESERVE what's remaining of the USA and to OBSTRUCT Bozo Trump's / Republicans constant ASSAULT on our Health-Care System, Retirement Benefits, NATO Allies War Heroes, Women etc etc:

                  The ONLY question in 2020 will be how HUGE the Progressive Democratic VICTORY will be in the Senate and will they gain a VETO Proof Majority which is highly likely, and which incredibly talented and intelligent Democratic Presidential Candidate STOMPS whomever the GOP Presidential Candidate happens to be:

            Perhaps before you respond you should read and understand what the actual plan is.  Read and understand the proposal.  Put some effort into gaining facts rather than just repeating lying appeals to emotion.

            It usually goes a long way...if you're honest and not just out to bash the President regardless of truth.

              The Bozo Trump / Russian Republican scam makes MASSIVE unconscionable CUTS to critically important retirement entitlements Medicare, Medicaid & Social Security just to pay for the "Corporate Welfare Tax CUT Scam" passed by republicans months ago which transferred 2 Trillion or OUR dollars to the filthy rich: It's another Unholy ASSAULT on our health-care by Donald and the Russian Republicans and that's all anyone needs to know and YES, thank the GOOD Lord Nancy "Powerhouse" Pelosi and her New Progressive Pro-America Democratic House will OBSTRUCT and Halt Mr. Trumps atrocious scheme:

      I don't think anyone even knows what you're talking about Onusonus or what your little sign has to do with the subject of Bozo Trump's constant despicable and unlawful attacks on our health-care system, but we usually get a pretty good indication of who actually lives here in the USA and who actually WORKED a Real Job here and EARNED critically important Medicare and Social Security Benefits by their responses to this subject:

      Let's just say I've never met an American Worker who told me he or she was HOPING for Massive CUTS to his or her retirement benefits, and anyone who is in favor of Bozo Trump's and Russian Republicans plot to SLASH them I'd have to assume probably NEVER worked a day here in the USA:

        I don't think they have much of any defense Jake. They know Trump ran on not cutting Medicare. But, hey, those were just words right? I mean, he didn't really mean it, just like Mexico paying for the wall.

          You know hard sun, I truly believe only a tiny sliver of his followers even listen to his incoherent boring predictable babblings anymore, even world leaders either ignore him or laugh at him which is pathetic and a poor reflection on the USA:

          I think we all realize by now the evidence is mounting to solidify that he's the most dreadfully unabashed liar in political history and he was obviously placed in our oval office by our arch enemy Russia to tear down our democracy to its very core and as a by-product, he enriches himself PERIOD:

          If Nancy "Powerhouse" Pelosi and the NEW Righteous Democratic Congress continue to skewer him with necessary investigations and OBSTRUCT & Halt his mad abominable plot to cripple Medicare and Social Security which everyone anticipates they will, this alone was well worth voting them in:

              I agree hard sun, but the number of his followers also appear to be SHRINKING rapidly and the proof is in the Monstrous Democratic VICTORY in the midterms, a total REBUKE of Mr. Trump and his Russian Republicans:

              For those who have actually worked in the USA and have EARNED Entitlement Retirement Benefits, or those who are already retired and depend upon their critically important earned social security income stream and medicare, they are about to realize a MAJOR Victory against Donald Trump and Republicans when Nancy "Powerhouse" Pelosi and her NEW Righteous Progressive Democrats in the House OBSTRUCT and Halt Trump's plot to SLASH social security, medicare ad medicaid by over a TRILLION Dollars according to reports which is absolutely ABOMINABLE:

              And believe it or NOT, imagine this, Nancy Pelosi and Progressive Democrats like AOC are about to save EVEN the last remaining Trump followers from Donald's assault on their income & health-care: Imagine that, Democrats SAVING "MAGA hatters" despite themselves, Now that's the True Christian way:

      I don't really know what you're trying to get at StevenHall but immediately cancelling Mr. Trump's / Republicans "Corporate Welfare Tax Cut Scheme", Republican Socialism which transferred about 2 TRILLION of our wealth to the filthy rich is a pretty good place to start debt and deficit reduction:

      Americans refuse to accept a shift of Trillions of our wealth to the Creepy rich Steve Mnuchins of the world so they can buy a few more mansions at the expense of critically important Medicare and Social Security:

      Nancy "Powerhouse" Pelosi and the NEW Democratic Congress will OBSTRUCT and HALT Trump's and Republicans abominable Budget SCAM to SLASH Entitlement Retirement Programs like Medicare and Social Security and guess what, Nancy will even save the "MAGA" hatters retirement income despite themselves:
