President Trump’s Federal Budget is the Start of Reduced Spending
President Donald Trump’s spending plan is the “start” of the government reigning in spending, particularly in entitlement programs, according to Republican National Committee (RNC) spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany.
“We think this budget is the 1st start” of reigning in spending, she said, pointing to a proposed $237 billion cut to Medicare spring, the heath program for the elder and disabled, Ms. McEnany said.
She also hailed the $1.5-T infrastructure proposal that relies heavily on state and local governments to produce much of the funding.
Democrats “have already charged the taxpayer $787-B,” from an Obama-era Y 2009 stimulus plan, she said, and it “did not work.”
“Let us try to raise money from the private sector,” she said.
