This post, amazingly enough is almost going to be complementary to the Republican President. It appears what he asked for in the budget wasn't quite as bad as what Congress gave you. Here is a chart showing his proposals and what happened. The full story is linked below.

The light blue circle is his proposal, the dark blue is the budget number. For some reason, the numbers didn't survive the C&P. Go to the link to see the data.

Looks like President Trump is a lot more fiscally responsible than our Congress.

Weren't you condemning Trump for how much this spending bill added to the budget deficit and national debt?

Now you are applauding Congress for spending a lot more in nearly every category than what Trump asked for?

Maybe Congress will follow the President's lead and we will see some fiscal responsibility next go around.

Trump promised he would "never sign another bill like this again," and his next budget proposes deep cuts all over again.
