Trump’s Budget Cuts Deeply Into Medicaid and Anti-Poverty Efforts--My Comment


What kind of humanity makes up these Republicons and Trump? How do they live with themselves? To give tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires but slash efforts to help the poor with Medicaid and other anti-poverty programs is just plain representative of human beings without conscience.

How much money do these millionaires and billionaires need? How many houses can one live in or cars can one drive or boats can one sail? I simply do not understand how human beings living in the most affluent nation on earth can choose to spend hard middle class earned tax dollars on weapons of war that do nothing but kill other human beings, many helpless, but solve nothing and let those in this nation, most of whom through no fault of their own, cannot exist without help from these necessary programs.

Many will die of that one can be assured. Who will care? I care and so many that share my values care. We must resist with all that we have to resist because what Trump and his merry men want to do is simply just wrong, it is evil and surely they are not the Christians they claim so fervently to be.
