Commentary: Trump’s budget is bad for America’s poor
BUDGETS are documents that show the priorities of administrations. Last week, Donald’s Trump’s White House rolled out its first budget that shows it puts walls, weapons and war ahead of America’s poor.
This budget plunders money for food from seniors, heat from families and educational programming from America’s kids. It bars America’s most vulnerable from being able to live in safe, affordable homes and destabilizes communities across the country. With 45 million people in the U.S. living in poverty – and millions more teetering on the edge of it – cutting programs that support families will not make this country great.
