    White House readies first Trump budget that could take aim at popular programs

    In trying to achieve those goals Republicans don't seem to mind removing important programs that should not be targeted. We don't ever hear, however, that they are eliminating their own GOP pork barrel projects and making the rich pay more in taxes as they should. It's always about hitting the...
