    Build up the Military-Industrial complex at the cost of the Opioid crisis, crumbling infrastructure, social programs, the EPA, the environment in general, and on and on and on... This is how we are going to Make America Great Again.

    Trump never made decicits an issue. He’s not a budget hawk.

    Trump got elected to fix the economy, help businesses grow and create jobs, cut taxes (same thing), fix immigration policy, end the Obamacare mandates, deregulation, get tough with foreigners walking all over us, pulling out of silly climate change deals, protecting the 2nd Amendment and getting good judges.

    He also got elected to fix our infrastructure, after Obama wasted a trillion dollars on shovel ready jobs that never lifted many shovels.

    What did Trump say about Medicare and Medicaid? What does his budget proposal say about those programs?

    Why is the right suddenly silent over these deficits and how is it even possible that we are going to accumulate those while making these huge cuts to social programs and also reaping the (increased Federal tax collections) rewards of the tax cut?

    How does his infrastructure plan fix anything? Are you in support of increasing the taxes in Michigan to fund the Trump infrastructure plan?

    Trump told the Washington Post on March 31, 2016 that he could eliminate the debt "fairly quickly" without raising taxes "over a period of eight years."

    Trump in Keene, NH 9/30/2015 - "we are not going to have a $400 billion deficit."


    From the Trump campaign website -

    "Attack our debt and deficit by vigorously eliminating waste, fraud and abuse in the Federal government, ending redundant government programs, and growing the economy to increase tax revenues. Closing the deficit and reducing our debt will mean China cannot blackmail us with our own Treasury bonds."

    At least he could be getting ready to defund PBS and NPR.
    Also he's talking about ending food stamps in some locales and going to a food program. Instead of an ebt card you'd get a food basket approved by the government. This one has been humorous as the libs are screaming the free market should allowed to work and people shouldn't get food baskets that they should continue with the ebt cards. When was the last time a liberal wanted a free market?
    Don't forget the budget busting plan was a bi partisan agreement. So you libs can take your fair share of blame for this unholy mess. Had your boys and girls held their line the budget wouldn't have passed. Now it's like having snyder on steroids.

    Couldn't be a coincidence could it? Soaring deficits versus combat threats and helping the middle class? Check out the dates of AP's tweets. hmmm.

    Except those lake trout are being planted per a court order found in favor of the tribes. I wonder if Asian Carp and Lake Trout can co-exist with no salmon plants!

    It was a classic bait-n-switch pulled on the working class voters in the rust belt, the guys who gave Trump the election. Should have known con-man Trumplestiltskin, he of the many bankruptcies and swindles, wouldn't keep his promises. Ryan and the rest of the Gluttonous Oligarch Party must be rolling around the floor in glee.
