The Trump administration released their budget plan this morning and I'm posting links to some good early analysis. First the good news...Veterans Affairs would see an increase of about 4 billion dollars. That's really it for proposals that might help Americans. The rest of the proposal would pretty much strip away funding to all domestic programs in order to partially offset a 54 billion dollar increase to defense spending. I'm not really sure how eliminating programs like the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, which disburses funds to struggling families to help them heat their homes during the winter, puts America First? I'm also not sure how eliminating the National Endowment for the Arts, eliminating the Appalachian Regional Commission, and eliminating support to clean up the Chesapeake Bay and Great Lakes puts America First?
