This week President Trump released his budget proposal.
True to his word, this plan will fulfill many of his campaign promises focused on reducing America’s spending.
It will aim to low the federal government’s debt by, among other things, slashing wasteful spending.
While critics will try to tear the proposal to shreds, it’s clear that Trump is working to end bloated government programs that waste taxpayer dollars.
Including a very obvious fix that has been draining our cash for years.
From True Pundit:
President Donald Trump’s budget proposal for 2018 prevents illegal immigrants from claiming two major tax credits for low and middle income people, according to White House documents released Tuesday morning.
The $4.1 trillion budget would restrict eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit to taxpayers “who are authorized to work in the U.S.,” MarketWatch reported…
The White House estimates tightening eligibility rules for the two tax credits will save about $40 billion over a decade.
White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney says it’s unfair to legal residents that people in the U.S. without authorization are eligible for the same tax breaks.
“How do I go to somebody who pays their taxes, and say, ‘Look, I want you to give this earned income tax credit to somebody who’s working here illegally’? That’s not defensible,” Mulvaney told reporters Monday. “And it’s a reasonable accommodation to simply ask them for Social Security numbers.”
It’s shocking that this basic requirement hasn’t been in place already. How can people who aren’t even authorized to work in the U.S. get government benefits and tax cuts?
Yet another break Obama’s administration gave to people who are here illegally. It seemed there was no depth he would go to help aliens, but never actual Americans.
This measure will go a long way in ensuring eligible Americans will receive the tax breaks they deserve. It will also go a long way in rewarding immigrants who follow the law and punishing those that break it.
Isn’t that what we should be expecting from our government?
The debate of Trump’s budget proposal will continue to rage in the coming days and weeks. We will keep you updated on the latest.
