But YOU are going to love it! Big League. Believe me. It’s YUGE.
President Trump’s ‘America First’ 2018 Budget Blueprint has been released.
And the lefties and RINOs are going mental.
The President has allocated funds to beef up the military and to build the southern border wall — to the tune o f 1.5 Billion.
And where is he getting that from?
Well, that’s the best part.
President Donald Trump has released a budget plan that makes significant cuts to spending to fund his border wall and the military build-up he’s been promising – and was called ‘America First’ by the official who wrote it.
Cut the deepest is the State Department, which is being slapped with a 28 per cent reduction to its foreign aid division. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Housing and Urban Development Department is also expected to suffer.
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which provides support to NPR and PBS – the broadcaster of Sesame Street – will see its funding phased out if Trump’s budget makes it past the House and Senate over the objection of both conservatives and liberals.
Trump is proposing the dramatic cuts to some agencies so he can put $1.5 billion toward his wall with Mexico this year and appropriate an additional $54 billion for defense in 2018 without adding to the federal deficit…
…Cuts to discretionary spending, which came in at over $1 trillion in 2017 according to theOffice of Management and Budget, are dollar for dollar, Trump’s budget director said Wednesday. It will be up to affected agencies to figure out how to implement them.
‘We’ve given them a tremendous amount of flexibility within their own agencies this year,’ OMB Director Mick Mulvaney claimed Wednesday during a briefing for White House reporters…
…’This is a hard power budget. This is not a soft power budget,’ Mulvaney said of the appropriations. ‘This is a hard-power budget. And that was done intentionally. The President very clearly wants to send a message to our allies and our potential adversaries that this is a strong power administration.‘
In 2017, State received $37.8 billion in discretionary spending. Most of that, $22.7 billion according to The Balance, went to foreign aid. That amounts to roughly two percent of what was put aside by the government for discretionary spending.

Cutting funding in areas that are duplication of services, or that the Federal Government has no business meddling with in the first place.
And then using those funds for border control and our military.
Well, only if you’re on the left.
Let’s be clear, it’s really difficult to cut entitlement programs because agencies feel as though they deserve the taxpayer money.
No, I don’t want to subsidize your special interest group!
The federal government is responsible for border control and our military, not television programming for children.
It’s about time that somebody has the brass cajones to say that a lot of this special interest funding is ridiculous and needs to stop.
President Trump, you really are Making America Great Again!
Rock out to this ‘Trumpular’ tune in your celebratory revelry:
