Trump to Clear Cut Federal Budget

President Elect Donald Trump has taken on a herculean task of eliminating funding for 72 government programs, saving the government $10.5 trillion dollars and balancing the budget within 10 years.

Given the 2017 Federal Budget is standing at $4.147 for 2017, with Trump’s proposed cuts, the government’s bloated budget would be reduced by a massive 25.3%.

Government workers were previously shaking in their khakis at a thought of a 10% reduction in the budget.

Cuts include the obvious, like defunding Planned Parenthood, and global warming offices and studies, but also eliminates spending on the following as an example:

Job Corps
National Endowment for the Arts
National Endowment for the Humanities
Environmental Justice Programs
National Clean Diesel Campaign
Land and Water Conservation Fund
EPA Civil Enforcement Program
Killing nine different Climate Programs
Privatizing the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (bye bye Sesame Street)
DOE Funding for Small Business Innovation Research
SBA Disaster Loan Program
Community Development Financial Institutions Fund
Export-Import Bank
Multi-State Plan Program
Violence Against Women Grants
Office of Community Oriented Policing Services
Grants from the Office of Justice Programs
Legal Services Corporation

Etc. etc., etc.,

Team Trump also plans to lease out or sell all of the spare office space provided by the cuts to the EPA.

The extensive list, compiled by the Heritage Foundation and adopted by incoming Trump staffers, is likely the tip of the iceberg to finally reign in the size and scope of government.

HURRAH FOR TRUMP  CLEAN THE SWAMP

The left will kick,scratch, yell and scream over the loss of their pet programs. They have been robbing these programs for years. That's the purpose of their creation, much of them are useless give aways. Some of these programs they can't explain what they do, the purpose. Wasteful spending.
Go Trump Go.

i love it

Hurrah!  This is Action, thank you President Trump.  Maybe, my comment will not be welcome, but after viewing the titles of several of the discussions, I see ,they are all about all of the ugly things, people are doing and saying, to me this is not hopeful, it is not optimistic.   I am eagerly looking forward to our remaking, and curing our Nation, therefore, why not focus on good, positive topics?  We all know the Left is Low, Trashy and Lie, we've seen this for over we eight years. I would urge the Blogs to search out positive Topics.    Let's move forward, leaving all the ugliness to those who wish to indulge in it.    I do not care to discuss how tacky they can be, this one article is positive, thank you, please search out the good, and let's discuss how we can rejoice.  Just an Opinion.

WOW......Jo...so well said.  I agree with  you so much.   Thus goes that saying....."if you lie with dogs, one will soon get fleas too."   We all need to rise above the base rethoric and stand on a much higher plane than the lib-tards are advocating.   We will not be pulled into their sick narrative.    We as a people are much better than that plus....we have so much more to do and accomplish than to be languishing on their level.   Thanks for your thoughts.    Your post needs to go viral.

Thanks Steve, I appreciate your comments and support. I just feel like, well, we've taken a bath, put on clean clothes, let's don't get dirty again!!!

OMG.......And the list just goes on and on.   Government workers sucking on the tit of government for so long, they will be hard pressed to know how to make it on the outside.  No more playing around at their desk for 5 hours or more per day, and only appearing to work the remaining time.   And here I have been working like a dog for the past 40 years, struggling to make a living and pay my taxes, and these people are doing nothing.   Having The Donald at the helm did not come too soon.   So all you lazy - good for nothing - government money pits - tit suckers, I tell you:    Go and get yourself a real job and then you will see what normal America is all about.

Keep the cuts coming Mr. President.   BLM - IRS - EPA - Education Agency - State Highway funding - on and on and on it will go.   Fix the influx of our heard earned dollars so they stay in our states and not going into the Federal Government coffers.   I have heard it said before, that the governments role is this:   "Protect our borders and send us our mail."   Beyond that....all other aspects of the bloated government needs to go back to the states.   So take this you lib-turds...and shove it...!!!

Most of these programs baffle us, what service do they perform. Why is the National Endowment of the Arts needed we have the Smithsonian. If the said art is distasteful then children shouldn't see it, if it offends an adult it should not be on display. The problem with the left is they can't imagine anyone having rights other than their discriminating beliefs and practices. As a boy growing up in the public school system, a long time ago, we understood that Americans rights end where it intruded on the rights of others. It was very simple to understand. I don't want my tax dollars used to display the filth they use to disrespect us. Damn their sacrilegious art that is vulgar and only used to start fires in the hearts of Christians. In this case I think I have God's support when I say that I curse the artist, those that display it and those that support it.
We have another 71 programs if anyone likes grab one and attack.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

Live Free or Die

Hey Tea Party Friends........here is an overdue topic I think needs discussing, or more discussing.

The Saboteurs, and Traitors that are working to pull our nation down should be dealt with and harshly I think.   The actions and associations that George Soros is purportrating, needs to be done away with and get his butt deported out of this country.  Plus there are so many of our congress men and women that are right out Communist.   This Beloved Nation has no room or should allow anything Communist to grow and exist here.

Anyone for creating a movement to cleanse our country of this scourge?   You know them all.....Polesi, Reid, Boxer, Sanders, Warren......well you get the idea.

There are two things that I think we need, but we would have to try to get TRUMP! to make it happen.

1)  If we could get TRUMP! to start the House UN American Activities Committee going again, that would do a ton to take out the trash.

2)  If we could get the House to pass a bill or TRUMP! to write an EO, requiring background checks on sitting elected and non-elected representatives in federal agencies, and in Congress. Then throw out the ones with communist brains and ban them from government positions. And of course, no muslimes.

3) Or maybe, better yet, work for an Amendment, through the regular Amendment process, to consolidate both of these ideas into one. Background checks on all parts of their lives, no commie, muzzie, traitorous inclinations, can be hired in any part of government. and any mistakes in office must be fired ASAP. Plus a constitution test, 100% accuracy required.

Brand them, permanently. As UN American. I want justice and house cleaning, too.

Other than that, what thoughts do you have? We need to do something. I would also love Citizen's Arrest for unconstitutional actions, which could happen if we could return to Citizen's Grand Juries. If we just had CGJ, we could take out the trash ourselves.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
