How much of his first budget blueprint will survive congress?

It's Donald Trump's budget vs. American lives
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2017/3/16 ... ican-lives
Former Vice President Joe Biden said “Don’t tell me what you value. Show me your budget and I will tell you what you value,” and the National Republican Congressional Committee actually thought that was worth repeating as an attack on the Obama-Biden budget back in 2013.

Well.

Donald Trump’s budget tells us plenty about what he values—but it tells us even more about what he doesn’t value.

Trump values military hardware. He values a border wall. He doesn’t value people’s lives—feeding people or keeping them warm, doing medical research to prevent and heal diseases, job training or college preparation for disadvantaged youth. He doesn’t value the environment, or parks, or the arts. Trump’s America, the America he is trying to build with this budget, is ignorant, unskilled, sick, hungry, cruel, and violent. It’s bleak and barren and devoid of joy.

Here are some of the details.

In other words, he's a Republican. Feel how you want about his budget, but it falls in line with the Republicans' general beliefs of "smaller gov't".

I wonder how long it will take for the US to ostracize itself from all of its major allies.

If I was May I'd be like **** this guy.

How does Sean Spicer still have a job? Funnily enough, the Obama Admin spokesperson never screwed up enough to require *formally apologizing* to a tier 1 ally.

Imagine having to defend a buffoon on a daily basis....Spicer and Conway have the two toughest jobs in the world. Probably why Spicer looks like a massive prick and Conway looks like the wicked witch of the west. The stress is taking its toll.

Germany could file a suit against the United States at the World Trade Organization over President Donald Trump’s proposed border tax, the economy minister said on Friday ahead of a meeting between Chancellor Angela Merkel and Trump later in the day.

LOL, that was quite the SJW rant. Boohoo, somebody's angwy!

Yay for smaller government!

Very true...they only had to apologize for spying on tier 1 allies!

I'm for smaller government but deregulation really helped protect the middle class against the Wall Street douchebags back in '08.

In other news, the new healthcare bill seems to be pretty great. Trump has said so about 1.8 billion times.

How does it work? No idea
How is it great? No idea

But f it. It's great.

No, they had to apologize for accusing the UK of spying on them... a pretty bone-headed move (the accusation) by any measure of the imagination

Agreed...very stupid thing to say, just to scramble for a justification on the wiretapping snafu.

I was referring to Obama's leak about him spying on our allies a few years ago...which he apologized for.

Obama's administration was deceitful and willfully tried to undermine the US and its allies...Trump administration is just fun! The policy (what little policy that came out so far) is on the whole good news for believers in smaller government and less government handouts, and his clown-show is just awesomely entertaining.

In other news, Turkey is so mad at the Dutch (for not letting him peddle his theocracy there) that Erdrogan has said that a Holy War is coming in Europe. We are on the sane side of the ocean it seems!

Trump is out for blood. America has been disrespected too long.
The problem is he doesnt recognize every action has an equal and opposite reaction. For each car that gets taxed not only is the tax passed onto US consumers at the retail price but also affects US jobs. From less cars at the loading docks, less purchases, less distribution, lower supply chain, less dealerships, parts suppliers, mechanics, etc., etc., that's jobs LOST in the US car and manufacturing sector. Chump always talks about taxing imported mexican goods.... US ambassador to Mexico says that will result in the loss of 6 mil US jobs both direct and indirect.

who said he was actually going to go through with it? What's wrong with a president that's not afraid to spout garbage trash talk to make our allies a little less comfortable with their current free protection and handouts

What a dumb comment. You actually think the allies are getting unhinged. Folks on the ground will bear the brunt of his stupidity.
