Trump’s Budget Asks the Right Questions for Conservatives
This is why Trump was elected he’s not political he’s practical. He’s trying to make the states do what belongs to the states and the Federal Government do what the federal government should do.
He’ also trying to stop spending money on programs that have not been working. He refuses to throw away tax dollars to satisfy interest groups.
This is a new approach let’s watch and see what happens.
“Trump wants to spend more money on transportation, homeland security, and the military, so he has to cut other stuff. The result has been called antediluvian in many quarters, but you don’t need to go back quite that far in history. In fact, with this budget, Trump is not even seeking a return to the (lightly fictionalized) laissez-faire ideology of the nineteenth century, or the version often attributed to modern libertarians. What he is doing is reframing the focus of government: away from people abroad and towards people at home, largely away from blue-state concerns and towards red-state ones. And he is trimming back, though far from eliminating, the post-1960s attempt, sadly as-yet-unsuccessful, to micromanage poverty out of existence.”
