Trump’s budget proposes nearly $2 billion in cuts to social programs

Trump’s budget proposal goes to Congress tomorrow: $1.7 billion slashed from social programs over next 10 years. Neoliberal scorched earth economics coming home to roost.

Medicaid will be cut $800 billion; disability benefits, food stamps, children’s health benefits, federal pensions will be slashed by unspecified billions. Medicare is not directly assaulted but seniors will be directly affected.

It may be time for our own Arab Spring.
