Read it for yourself for whatever applies to you. Don't let the news pundits tell you what's what.

highlights

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/3/11/18259789/trumps-2020-budg et-proposal-cuts


One of my favorite parts of it:

"Supports a Peaceful Resolution to the Afghan Conflict. The Budget provides $533 million for
assistance to Afghanistan. The Budget prioritizes economic growth and reconciliation, investments to
help Afghanistan to work toward peace. The Budget supports programs that target private-sector led
economic growth, including by increasing the country’s export capability and attracting international
investment. The Budget also supports education, health, governance, and other sectors that are necessary for a stable and thriving Afghanistan. "

Some of the farmers are not happy.

I think it is true they should have crop insurance. I also think we should stop trying to shove GMO food down the throats of Americans.

Medicare and Medicaid cuts are also on the table.

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/03/12/trump-2020-budget-proposes-reduced-medicare -and-medicaid-spending.html

The concept of providing block grants to states and letting the states deal with how they administer these programs has been around for a long time, no other President wanted to really deal with it.

Trump's budget would reduce the subsidy in some cases in some states that people are using to get Obamacare coverage. Obamacare has been a hot topic. NYS put it in several tiers, one you would only have to pay $20 a month for coverage. If your income was above a certain level, then it would be $50 a month, but you still have Dr. co-pays, and deductibles to meet each year which are too high for most people to meet.

Trumps idea is to provide a voucher type of system where people can shop for their own coverage much like shopping for car insurance, you go out and get what you want and need; but the greed of the insurance companies will not make this an easy task. They want profits.

Critics cite these cuts

https://www.citylab.com/equity/2019/03/trumps-2020-budget-cuts-social-secur ity-medicare-food-stamps/584440/


One thing that can be done is to have a universal basic income for people who are unemployed or require some form of governmental assistance for housing, food, medical care. Give them what they need to remain in their homes if they have one when they lose their jobs instead of having the banks foreclose on them; give them what they need to pay their rent when they lose their jobs and stop treating them like convicts persecuting them paying an unemployment rate that will not even let them pay their bills much less pay those big gas prices to go look for another one. If people are hungry, provide the money they need so they can eat and feed their families. Get out of the 50's paradigm mindset that believes great paying jobs are available anyplace and if you are down and out it is your own fault. Instead of complicated formulas based on costs from the 1960's when this is almost 2020, give people a basic living income when they need one. It is too much to ask for a Universal Living Wage to occur, but we could at least provide a 'basic universal income' for those who need it.

Insurance companies are the enemy of the people


I'm kind of there with you, I am no fan of insurance companies. That is always something I never understood about people fearful or resistant of a government run health care systems. Why? Because they don't trust or like their government...who likes or trusts their insurance company any better? There are different concerns that people could raise, but if we are simply comparing insurance companies to the US government surely nobody would put the insurance industry on any kind of podium.

Two different things - health insurance and health care. Insurance is only good for paying somebody to assume the risk of your potential lose and expense. On going "maintenance" of one's health, or covering the ongoing and preexisting conditions that one might have is not the insurance industry's job.

We need massive overhaul with how this country about the concept of health care. Cut the insurance industry out of it. Cut employers out of it. I'm with the Democrats on this, but we must also have some personal responsibility and accountability to the expense that an individual creates for the system whereby after some basic tax structure to pay for it, the people that use more should pay more.

Find me someone to bridge that gap and they'll have my vote.

Good distinction between health insurance and health care.

Obamacare had good intentions and ideas, it was just the companies who would not yield on the huge deductibles due to their own adverse loss experiences and bottom line. They are not in it to be philanthropists, they want to make money.
