If a budget is a statement of values and priorities, President Donald Trump\u0026#039;s proposal for fiscal year 2020 clearly displays his commitment to enriching the wealthy at the expense of ordinary Americans.\u0022Make no mistake about it: Trump\u0026#039;s budget is a massive transfer of wealth from working class families to the wealthiest people and most profitable corporations in America.\u0022 —Sen. Bernie SandersThat was how Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) characterized Trump\u0026#039;s $4.7 trillion budget request on Monday after the White House released details of the plan, which includes a massive increase in military spending and trillions of dollars in total cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.\u0022The Trump budget is breathtaking in its degree of cruelty and filled with broken promises,\u0022 Sanders, the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, said in a statement. \u0022Donald Trump promised the American people that he would be a different type of Republican, that he would be a champion of the working American and that he would not cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. But his budget does the exact opposite of what he promised the American people.\u0022Over the next decade, Trump\u0026#039;s budget—officially titled \u0022A Budget for a Better America\u0022—would slash Medicaid by $1.5 trillion, Medicare by $845 billion, and Social Security by $25 billion, according to Sanders\u0026#039; office. The president\u0026#039;s blueprint also requests $8.6 billion in border wall funding.\u0022This is a budget for the military industrial complex, for corporate CEOs, for Wall Street, and for the billionaire class,\u0022 Sanders said. \u0022It is dead on arrival.\u0022This is a budget for the military-industrial complex, for corporate CEOs, for Wall Street and for the billionaire class. We don’t need billions of dollars for a wall that no one wants. We need a budget that works for all Americans, not just Trump and his billionaire friends. https://t.co/qKf8iXpYzF— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) March 11, 2019Giving the Pentagon \u0022even more than it hoped for,\u0022 Trump\u0026#039;s budget calls for an $861 billion increase in base military spending over the next ten years.That sum, Sanders said, \u0022could make public colleges and universities tuition-free over the next decade.\u0022Warren Gunnels, Sanders\u0026#039; staff director, tweeted: \u0022We don\u0026#039;t need a magic wand or a genie to make public colleges free. We need to get our priorities right.\u0022Over the next 10 years, Trump\u0026#039;s budget would cut:- $1.5 trillion from Medicaid- $845 billion from Medicare- $25B from Social Security- $207B from college education- $220B from food stampsWhile base defense spending would increase by $861 billion https://t.co/o7IW4SQIMq— Warren Gunnels (@GunnelsWarren) March 11, 2019As the Washington Post\u0026#039;s Jeff Stein and Amy Goldstein reported, Trump\u0026#039;s budget proposal calls for coverting Medicaid into a block-grant system and handing states the power to set coverage rules—a move that would endanger the healthcare of millions of low-income Americans.\u0022Make no mistake about it: Trump\u0026#039;s budget is a massive transfer of wealth from working class families to the wealthiest people and most profitable corporations in America,\u0022 Sanders concluded.
