Trump’s budget will make most of his supporters regret their presidential decision. Trump is in the White House today because he told his supporters what they wanted to hear. The majority of these supporters are from regions in the country with immense unemployment. Lack of education, drug abuse, starvation, and scarcity of jobs are prevalent in these areas. Everywhere from the rural Southeast to abandoned factory towns to Indian reservations, Donald Trump was perceived as a messiah. Donald Trump knew such demographics were hopeful and desperate, easy prey to his manipulation. Cult leaders search for similar despondent disposition.
The budget that our president revealed yesterday, proved to those die-hard supporters that they were all tricked. Trump’s budget drastically cuts food stamps and unemployment assistance. This could mean life or death to many of the people who voted for Trump, as well as their children.
Of course, lack of education is consistent in poorer areas. I wrote this article at the end of last year, which proves that last sentence. According to my article, states that were the most against Obamacare used Obamacare the most. Without a severe drought of education, how the heck-fire do you explain that one?
The Washington Post reports that Trump’s budget will include $800 billion in Medicaid cuts over the next 10 years, which would cause 10 million low-income people to lose health benefits. There will also be a strict guideline of work requirements for anyone who receives social welfare programs. $193 billion would be slashed from our nation’s food stamp program. Trump calls it “welfare reform”. I call it a firing squad to the suckers that voted for him!
During the campaign, star-struck Trump supporters insisted that Trump was just too wealthy to be corrupt. They were convinced that Trump’s massive wealth meant he would only be concerned about improving his supporter’s lives. During the campaign, Trump was so chummy with those at his rallies. He spoke to them as if they were hanging out at the local bowling alley. Lawrence Kudlow, the CNBC host of The Kudlow Report, summarized this grotesque logic perfectly.
In a National Review column, Kudlow argued Trump and his administration could not be corrupted. “Why shouldn’t the president surround himself with successful people? Wealthy folks have no need to steal or engage in corruption.”
Trump has proven Kudlow wrong.
Those hundreds of billions of dollars of federal assistance, that were used to feed Trump supporter’s starving families, will now be redirected to tax breaks for his wealthy donors. So yes, Trump is stealing, though it is so vile and inhumane I have trouble labeling it as theft. After all, he isn’t just stealing money, Donald Trump is stripping essential necessities, like food and healthcare, from the very people who supported him. Those legions of Trumpkins that gathered in the freezing rain, just to see their orange savior, will now suffer a disturbingly horrendous fate.
Another group of Trump supporters that will be fed to the crows, are farmers. Trump’s budget, proposes some of the deepest cuts to agriculture subsidies since Ronald Reagan. A total of almost $50 billion over ten years. Here is another article I wrote about how magnificently Trump tricked the farming industry.
The president’s budget plan calls for more than $1 trillion in cuts to a wide range of social programs. Trump kept insisting how he would never cut Medicaid. Another Trump campaign lie, as he now decides to cut $600 billion to Medicaid over 10 years. HealthcareITNews article
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) would be cut by more than a billion dollars , ThinkProgress article. An agency that provides for women, infants and children will suffer beneath Trump’s budget cuts. Can you hear Satan’s hooves dancing in the White House? Disgusting!
Some of the funds that will be saved by starving little children and impoverished women, will go to defense programs. Military programs will soar to $722 billion! Steal food out of a babies mouth to fund our bombs. Disgusting!
The only thing more disgusting than their proposed legislation, is how they justify their bludgeoning.
Mulvaney rejected accusations that Trump’s budget unfairly targets the poor, arguing instead that it amounts to a broad rethink of the country’s welfare system.
“We need folks to work. We need people to go to work. If you’re on food stamps, and you’re able-bodied, we need you to go to work. If you’re on disability insurance and you’re not supposed to be, we need you to work,” he added. “There’s a dignity to work, and there’s a necessity to work.” Politico article
