Trump and Republicans are literally stealing food from the poor to fund tax credits for the rich. Their new budget cuts food stamps by 25% with $1.7 trillion in cuts from programs that help the poorest working Americans. Also in the cuts: NURSING HOMES FOR THE POOR AND DISABLED, federal pensions, farm subsidies, tax credits for the working poor, HEALTHCARE FOR INFANTS. This isn’t just bad politics, it is sick and twisted and evil.
President Donald Trump’s budget would drive millions of people off of food stamps, part of a new wave of spending cut proposals that already are getting panned by lawmakers in both parties on Capitol Hill.
