    Its great to play on emotion, it really hits people, and you can call people uncaring that say anything other than we should help those people. But the reality is that we are 20 trillion in debt. Let states handle it. Let states raise taxes.

    I mean I guess you could argue lets not increase military spending, and I'll agree with that, but that's probably going to happen.

    Dealing with that reality and the potential cuts, why would states opt to eliminate these programs? They could keep them going if they choose to pay for them.
    Yes, that's very true.

    And say, while we're at it, why don't the states buck up their own money for defense... California could probably control the world.

    I'd join 'em...

    Thx
    Thanks from MaryAnne

    Yea, because national defense and state homelessness are pretty comparable.

    We can only hope she comes back for more performances.
    You are not funny.

    How about discussing the fact that millions like that man will lose a hand up if the Trump budget goes through.

    Your foolish attitude in your posts are the reason this country is being destroyed within

    Hay Jenn, your post rated a 5 Star by me.

    Reagan started this corruption by closing all the mental hospitals and putting those people out on the streets to sleep under bridges and roam the streets.

    Now,Republicans hope to add to it but they can go admire the shiney Military and planes we do not need.

    You really hit the nail on that post.

    They say the fed has no money yet Trump wants to increase a Military budget that is already so huge they can not be audited. But sure,cut wheels on meals because it is not needed.

    An America first President's budget reflects who in America comes first.

    Somehow the Military gearing down after two wars is a sign of weakness in his head.

    Lets remember these cuts in social programs come before Trump massive tax give-back to the wealthy.

    If Republicans in Congress fall in line we need to remember them in 2018!

    Are you going to defend the trillion dollar tax cut for the 1% as a valuable component of trickle down?
