The Trump administration is finalizing a multibillion-dollar roster of proposed spending cuts but is leaving this year's $1.3 trillion catchall spending bill alone.

The last thing we need to do is reduce the debt our children/grandchildren will have to pay. Democrats will not allow that to happen.

What kind of cuts I wonder? And who suffers from the cuts? Is there any kind of balance?

We could always cut those billions from the Pentagon instead of from the children's healthcare insurance program.

Maybe the parents should go to work, and pay for their own kids insurance, that a novel thought.

For the Pentagon, at least 700 billion per year; plus mostly unfunded military adventures in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria; plus pledges to revamp the nuclear triad; plus ideas to have a new branch of the armed services for space combat.

The idiot, ignorant, gullible right wing base keeps begging for "government spending cuts" amidst this obscenity.

And the D. in the Senate are not much better on military industrial secrecy complex spending.

Nonsense.
Defense expenditures are the lowest in decades.
Yet,$7B CHIP funds are unneeded.
Would you really put America's future, your children's freedom, at risk to waste their inheritance?

Since you don't have a clue where the cuts will come, your liberal speculation is totally moronic.

Gasp! Are you going to interrupt this thread with transgender stuff?

I only post off topic when Topix posts articles that are off-topic on a US news page. I could have made a nasty comment on social engineering in the military on the thread where military planes are crashing in Georgia but I didn't

There's a functional difference between civility and respect. Most of us can be civil even if you will never have our respect. It's kind of like how I don't respect those who jab someone with a pin and say "bless me lord, for I have sinned" then do it again and again....but your bad habit is a slightly different one.

The world is filled with metaphorical nerds with pins, but they're just another kind of urban rat who acts first, then invents the social mandate that compelled them to act. The rest of us know that some people simply don't try to restrain their impulses, and probably can't.

Why assume that they aren't employed?

Through the bevy of Republican states, the lowest wage earners in America, those individuals toil 40 hours a week, but can't afford healthcare insurance for their children.

Snatching billions used to provide access to medical care and physicians for babies hardly reflects the characters traits of a populist out to improve the quality of life for the working class

Like most events taking place politically you never have any idea or understanding exactly what your political party's policies stand for.

If the cuts were passed in Congress Oklahoma and the economically deprived Republican states which voted Trump will have children healthcare insurance eviscerated

It's that what Republicans did in a party line vote to increase national debt $1.5 Trillion dollars to appease America's oligarchs and plutocrats with a 40% tax cut disguised as a Bigly middle class tax cut?

That was weeks prior to Trump's $1.3 Trillion dollar omnibus spending bill, the largest in the history of the United States?

That $15 billion dollars in cuts only makes life more difficult for working class families trying to exist on stagnant wages

Well, with 94 million people on public assistance when Obama left office, you donít need to be a rocket scientist to understand that most needing health care were unemployed.
Not to worry thought, Trump cut taxes, and they are getting back to work, and can afford health insurance once again.

Lie. You are really a clown, you profess to try to protect children as you cheer the millions killed every year by Planned Parenthood and ignorant minority and white trash women.

Can you prove that we are deprived, unless you mean we are deprived of higher taxes, cost of living and home/land cost. We live better than you miserable project dwellers.
