Here's What's In The House Republican Budget (And Why It Matters)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRu8JD3de6Y The House budget plan would slash spending by $5.4 trillion over 10 years, including more than $4 trillion in cuts to mandatory spending like Medicaid and Medicare, while ramping up defense spending.

  Commentary: ALBUQUERQUE, NM - After it became clear the Senate did not have the votes to pass the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced that the Senate would vote to repeal funding for Affordable Care Act and leave a replacement for the future.  By Tuesday morning, three Republican Senators released statements indicating they would vote “No” on such efforts. “I did not come to Washington to hurt people,” said Senator Shelly Moore Capito (R-WV). Senator Tom Udall and Senator Martin Heinrich of New Mexico also opposed the bill.

  Commentary: The G-20 consists of 19 of the strongest economies in the world, plus the European Union (EU).

Commentary: Right now everyone in America should be thinking seriously about what they want this nation to become.  In talking with family and friends about the 45th presidency whose catch phrase is "Make American Great Again", clearly the administration's usage of "great" does not match ours.

President Trump: Keep DACA in Place

Jul 18, 2017

Commentary: Washington, DC – The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the initiative that has provided deportation relief and work permits for nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants, is under attack. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has threatened the Trump Administration: if DACA isn’t ended by September 5th, he will sue to block it before a federal judge named Andrew Hanen, the notoriously anti-immigrant judge who blocked DAPA. Paxton seems to have a willing ally Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has long opposed DACA.
