“Bait and Cut” Plan Goes Into Effect as POTUS and GOP Begin “Necessary” Budget Recissions

Yesterday Common Dreams writer Jake Johnson wrote an article describing President Trump’s request to cut the budget adopted by Congress by $15 billion dollars, $7 billion on which will come from CHIP, the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Anyone with a background in basic mathematics, accounting, and economics knew budget cuts were inevitable and anyone who follows the news knew it would likely come from social services. As Mr. Johnson notes, the request will require only a majority vote by the House and the Senate. The question is: will ANY GOP member deny the request? If they don’t, get ready for even more assaults on the safety net. And here’s an even tougher question: will ANY Democratic candidate for POTUS run on a platform to undo the horrible tax bill that fattened the wallets of the plutocrats while “requiring” these “tough decisions” to be made by the GOP to “avoid a financial disaster” that would result from deficits.
