DDT’s Budget: Cruel

Nel's New Day

Amid the continuing scandals this week, including purchasing college placements and Boeing’s aviation disaster, the month-late budget from Dictator Donald Trump (DDT) lost its media traction after a day. It does, however, present his priorities of wall ($8.6 billion) and the military ($750 billion) with a $34 billion increase, priorities which translate into a white country and war. Every line item except the census, private VA care, and deportation/detention took hits—some of them huge. The budget even indicates expectations of ongoing annual deficits of at least $1 trillion while keeping tax cuts for the wealthy and big business. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow claimed that rapid growth needs these cuts, but the Congressional Budget Office projects 2019 GDP growth at 2.3 percent, down 25 percent from 2018. Last year’s unbalanced budget of $4.4 trillion relied on rose-colored economic projections that didn’t see fruition.

One thought on “DDT’s Budget: Cruel”

  1. Trump is fine with slashing services like Medicare and housing assistance while massively increasing spending on bloated military, nuclear weapons and crappy
    Reactors .

    Trillion dollar military budgets with drooplets of Americans and American children homeless

    He was fine with bailing out the bankers.

    I was working with Methodist Group to Help homeless in Loa Angeles in 2009. There were 250,000 homeless in Los Angeles County then. There are far more now. An isolated resort town in the west with 5000 people has over 200 homeless people. Seasonal work. People cannot afford rent.
    One hundred homeless people in Durago Colorado Force to sleep on site that had Uranium tailing.
    Durango is a small town.

    A town has 8000 people. I talked to a couple of elderly guys in front of Wal-Mart there. They said there are at least 150 homeless people there. Many older.
    1 in 4 students in california is homeless.

    People are seeing young people with signs asking for help, in smaller towns where it never happened before

    I think this is a low ball figure.

    People who work at Disneyland live out of cars

    My friend came to The USA from Puerto Rico after the Hurricane.
    She went to New York City, then moved west. She  left her 19 and 20 yo sons in New York City. They are homeless there. One of her sons says there are at least a hundred thousand or more in New York City. Many squatters.
    There are millions of homeless now in the richest country on earth.  Rents here have gone from 500 a month to a thousand or more a month. It is that way everywhere in America now.  People have to work 2 jobs to pay rent.

    The amount of homelessness in America is outrageous now. Especially children living in the streets. Elderly in the streets. People with cancer in the streets.  Rents double and triple over night.
