President Trump Releases New Conservative Budget

President Trump released a new budget for the year, which seeks funding for the wall and adds work requirements for welfare recipients. Fox News reports:

President Trump kicked off a new battle with Congress on Monday by releasing his fiscal 2020 budget plan seeking billions more in funding for a border wall and controversial work requirements for Americans collecting a variety of welfare benefits.

Both proposals are sure to face resistance from Democrats, especially coming off a partial shutdown triggered by a border wall dispute that only ended when Trump declared a national emergency over immigration — a step being litigated in the courts and challenged in Congress. The requests are part of the president’s $4.7 trillion budget plan.

Escalating Trump’s pursuit of wall funding, the White House in the new budget requested an additional $8.6 billion to build the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border—seeking $5 billion from Congress, plus $3.6 billion from the military construction budget, for fiscal 2020.

Meanwhile, the budget aims to implement new welfare requirements — namely, that Americans 18-65 years old work at least 20 hours a week in a job, a job training program or a community service program to secure a range of benefits and aid.

This budget is a step in the right direction, and is sure to start tough debates on the Hill.

Now if we could just get Trump to work 20 hours a week…at least for the USA, instead of Russia.

Confusion reigns supreme in your world ! This man works more hours and sleeps less than any president we have had in the past and all the waking hours he constantly looks for waysa to give us, his supporters, what we said we wanted during his first campaign, Build the Wall, rebuild the petroleum industry, get manufacturing back in this country, get fairer trade deals, get out of stupid show case agreements with nations that dont like us, realign the tax program so it takes less and is fairer, re work welfare to require able bodied people to work for their benefits, Reduce regulations to the point where they perform a public service not destroy an industry, give Farmers and Ranchers control of their water supplies not controlled by the state ! There’s even more but my little mind cant remember all of them except to say he has left Obama, Bush, Clintons even Reagan in the dust he makes things happen !

At least he’s not trying to turn America into a socialist communistic country.

Read the budget, negotiate area of conflict, pass the Bill and vote on it.
No elected legislator (nor their staff) are ever paid for any time that that bill does is not signed. All salaried continue as normal.

Trump’s priorities are clear. he takes funds designed to help the elderly, the poor, the sick, students, consumers and those who need clean air, water and soil and uses them to build his ugly wall and to compete with the Russians and others in a new nuclear arms race, a race he started by rescinding international agreements.

Get the loafers out their cleaning the streets, highways and buildings in the inner cities. The government complains about running out of social security money, yet they NEVER say anything about running out of welfare money….and the SS people have paid in all their lives. Ahhh, it’s great to live in America!!!
