Tennessee Congressman Cohen lately wrote that the proposed Healthcare plan “must have been known as the ‘Ebenezer Scrooge Act’ mainly because it enriches the wealthiest people today and harms the considerably less fortunate, the two fiscally and physically!”
Fortunately, we dodged the bullet that will have dismantled Medicaid and taken off the possibility of economical healthcare for tens of millions. Having said that, Scrooge is trying to strike again! When President Ebenezer Trump spends as much with the taxpayers money on private excursions (to Mar a Lago and so on) in one thirty day period as Obama did in a calendar year ($eleven million), he’s evidently looking to do away with each expenditure that doesn’t advantage big business.
Our country’s largest business enterprise nowadays is within the military services assistance industries. So, on March sixteenth, when our new Commander and Main launched his proposed funds, it suggested deep cuts in diplomatic endeavours to circumvent violent conflict and genocide, though increasing the big organization of armed service expenditures in outcome buying and selling the likelihood for peace for the understanding of war.
Trump’s finances would also lessen the EPA’s allowance by 31%! They wish to begin to see the removing from the Electricity Star system (which increases Power effectiveness), stop all funding for your Chesapeake Bay cleanup challenge, place an close into the grant application that helps cities and states take care of air pollution, AND eliminate the Environmental Justice Place of work since environmental justice is NOT a precedence. Company is evidently the one priority. This proposed funds would eliminate 50 EPA courses!
Last yr, lawmakers entirely disregarded Obama’s budget, and now We’ve a proposed spending plan that increases paying out on Military and Homeland security, but totally eliminates 19 agencies, and lessens expending on all the things else!
As Obama pointed out in his Point out from the Union deal with, January twelfth, 2020, “We invest extra on our military services than the next 8 nations mixed!”
Nevertheless, for his billionaire successor, that is not ample! And all we should do to spend a lot more is Lower expending on Those people non productive social courses that do not help any with the actually crucial men and women on Scrooge’s record.
This Ebenezer Budget

Trump’s now famed remark on the African American Group reveals just how very little comprehending and the amount of contempt his has for ordinary citizens: “You reside as part of your poverty, your schools aren’t any excellent, you haven’t any Employment… Just what the hell do You must drop?”
Well truly, his proposed funds would assure that poor (and not just the bad blacks) During this nation lose a lot. “Meals on Wheels,” heating and Electrical power help, and nutrition support to Females and children (WIC) could be greatly Slash or eliminated beneath Trump’s proposed finances! Pollution of our environment will escalate, terrorism will increase, because the elitists’ contempt for diplomacy pumps all our social funds into the war machine; although the promised work seems being mainly a single selection: The Armed service.
This isn’t entirely Trump’s fault even though it is his finances. A significant part of Congress has become enabling him, and that’s why we’d like a Brand New Congress whose priorities are similar to We The Folks! Discover how you can help: https://brandnewcongress.org/
