President Trump’s proposed budget for 2020 is spiteful towards Americans.
In California, we’re facing a 34% cut to our state’s clean water initiatives, and a $160 million cut to our disaster relief funding for Orange County alone.
Nationwide, the cuts are deep. A cruel slash of over $1 trillion from Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security targets some of the most vulnerable Americans.
Millions of Americans rely on these fundamental programs, and they should not face undue hardship to fund a fabricated “national emergency” or a tax break for the top 1% and mega-corporations.
