No surprise in this…..
It’s straight from the Republican hand book….
Less food, healthcare and shelter money (Entitlements)….
This go around things will be different….
Democrats have a majority in the House…..

Even with deep spending cuts, the president’s plan would not balance the budget until the mid-2030s, two people briefed on the plan said, falling short of the 10-year time frame that Republicans have sought for years. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the plan ahead of its public release.
Instead, Trump’s advisers say the budget would balance after 15 years because they presume that economic growth will continue at high levels and bring in more revenue, a prediction that many economists have said is not possible.

The proposal is Trump’s first comprehensive budget blueprint since Democrats took control of the House in January.
Unlike in the past two years, White House officials say they plan to forcefully fight for the proposed cuts, hoping to draw a sharp contrast with Democrats on Capitol Hill.
