Trump’s Budget Would Balloon Deficit, Slash Social Safety Net – Talking Points Memo | Agents of Behemoth | Scoop.it

The president’s spending outline for the first time acknowledges that the Republican tax overhaul passed last year would add billions to the deficit and not “pay for itself” as Trump and his Republican allies asserted.

Trump and Republicans are preparing an all-out assault on the safety net - The Washington Post

Trump and Republicans are preparing an all-out assault on the safety net - The Washington Post | Agents of Behemoth | Scoop.it

The memo points out that social programs poll extremely well and that we’ve seen recently how much GOP attacks on those programs motivate voters. Health care was a central issue propelling Democrat Ralph Northam to victory in the Virginia governor’s race in November, and the Republicans’ attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act produced a huge backlash in large part because of the millions of Americans they wanted to toss off Medicaid.
