Trump's "Cruel, Heartless" Budget

Click here for an article in The Boston Globe, by Michael A. Cohen, entitled "Trump’s dystopian budget is going nowhere." Here's the conclusion:
America has one of the highest rates of poverty in the developed world, sky-high levels of income inequality, and low levels of social mobility. And yet, the Trump budget is focused on “protecting” America from international terrorists, who kill fewer Americans every year than falling televisions.

In short, this a proposal that will make Americans sicker, poorer, more stressed, less educated, less financially secure, and decidedly unsafe. Thankfully, it’s a budget that will be going nowhere on Capitol Hill, even with Republican majorities in the House and Senate. But it tells us, unfortunately, everything we need to know about the cruel, heartless man sitting in the Oval Office.
