The Trump Budget

The Executive Branch is responsible for proposing a federal budget which is then considered by the Congress. Donald Trump has proposed a budget that makes sweeping cuts to social programs and services important to all of us, with massive increases to the military budget focused on weaponry and decreases to intelligence, cyber defense and the State Department.

This Executive Branch draft will be thoroughly sliced and diced by both houses of Congress. They will pass a budget that will look nothing like the Trump proposal. Look at how the things fare that are important to you, and let your Members of Congress know how you feel. Become very active in this budget process. Check this page often for new developments.
