    absolutely disappointing, but not surprising, that spending was not reigned in further under a (R) controlled congress and presidency. All sides of the political spectrum are too dependent on govt $....

    As I recall they were destroyed by the MSM who branded them as racists. That was before everyone realized that anyone opposing leftist ideals was, without regard to fact, branded as racist.

    Welp.....looks like we have the choice between a party that spends X amount on their chosen interests and a different party that spends X amount on their chosen interests.

    There is no longer a conservative choice for the peons.

    I have the very same issues when deciding who to vote for. None of the parties sit well with me. Time to bring back the Whig Party
    On the other side of fear lies freedom.

    The president submits a budget request to congress, they laugh and ignore it and do their own thing.

    It is disappointing. But also, Republicans are no longer conservative. Trump's daughter wants paid leave mandatory. He wants to spend $1.3T on infrastructure.

    The conservative stuff has been done already, this next step doesn't thrill me.

Is this NOT the very same issue that the Republicans hammered the Democrats on just a couple of years ago?
    I think you are not giving credit where credit is due. Trump is also pushing to fundamentally change how the money is spent and this has the potential to drastically lessen the growth of the overall deficit while still allowing priorities such as the wall and the military to be accommodated. when was the last time you saw another Republican propose actual cuts to the departments they were always claiming they would defund?

    Trump Administration Wants To Decide What Food SNAP Recipients Will Get

    The USDA believes that state governments will be able to deliver this food at much less cost than SNAP recipients currently pay for food at retail stores ó thus reducing the overall cost of the SNAP program by $129 billion over the next 10 years.
    This and other changes in the SNAP program, according to the Trump administration, will reduce the SNAP budget by $213 billion over those years ó cutting the program by almost 30 percent.
