Congressman Cleaver Slams Devastating Budget Proposal: The President’s budget hurts American families and cuts funding for Medicaid, SNAP, and Farming Assistance

Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II is deeply troubled by President Trump’s Fiscal Year 2018 budget proposal. The budget calls for a harmful reduction in programs that help every day, working families. It would gut safety net programs that serve many of our nation’s most vulnerable citizens. The proposal cuts taxes for the wealthy while cutting crucial housing, education, and health care services.

“The $3.6 trillion dollars in cuts are the steepest proposed by any U.S. president. These programs, that help our poorest Americans, were put in place for a reason. President Trump helps the wealthiest among us by providing a tax cut for them and then wipes out programs that feed children and help the elderly,” said Congressman Cleaver.

President Trump proposes to cut SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program by almost one-third. This federal nutrition program helps families stretch their food budget, helping 44 million Americans last year. In previous years in Missouri, over 844,000 people were helped each month by SNAP. In the Fifth District of Missouri alone, 25,000 households receive SNAP benefits. Cuts to this program would leave children in our community hungry and without assistance. The budget also proposes funding cuts to the Meals on Wheels program.

The President’s budget would decimate Medicaid, which provides health care for mothers with children and many people in nursing homes. Over 10 years, Medicaid funding would be slashed by more than $800 billion. Additionally, the budget cuts vital funding for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.

Instead of strengthening communities, President Trump proposes to eliminate funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program(LIHEAP) and the Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) program. Both of these programs have played an important role in helping residents in our own community.

“This is a budget I cannot support and will do everything in my power to see that Americans aren’t further harmed by this proposal,” said Congressman Cleaver.

Does Cleaver actually think he has any credibility? He couldn't pay back his loan for a fucking car wash and now he thinks he knows anything about the budget for the United States? He is a bogus negro.

this is just trump's way of negotiating.

hopefully it ends up being shaped into something common sensical.

Dumbfuck Cleaver has been very anti-Trump recently. I think he might be a racist, because he really doesn't know enough to be anti-anything. Except paying his own loans and taxes off.

Here's a project for him: Get a billion dollars for the new airport from Trump's infrastructure fund.

Then, it could be Cleaver II International with some justification.

Carwash Cleaver has as much credibility talking about budgets as a midget with a yo-yo does.

Irrelevant politicians frequently vow to 'fight or resist' the clearly mandated will of the people. Lucky for Cleaver and his ilk, there are sufficient leeches & dogasses in his district to keep him afloat. His bullshit lip-beating is nothing more than playing to his constituency.
