Dems Livid Over Trump Budget Cuts

Via American Action News:

President Trump’s 2021 budget proposal prompted immediate opposition from House and Senate Democrats, who condemned the plan’s 6% cut to nondefense spending and its provisions to slow the growth of entitlements.

“With his latest budget proposal, it’s hard to imagine that President Trump could do any more to double-cross the very American workers and middle-class families he promised to help just last week in his State of the Union address,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, said Monday. “As typical, President Trump’s budget shows his State of the Union address was lie upon lie to the American people.”

Senate Republicans greeted the plan with muted praise, pointing to elements of the proposal they favored.

Sen. Lamar Alexander, a Tennessee Republican, praised the proposed education tax credit scholarship that would help low-income families escape failing public schools.
