We have a debt crisis in the United States. That’s a fact. After eight years of reckless spending and irresponsible management, our country is in way over its head when it comes to the deficit.
If this was a company, it would have been bankrupt years ago. Under Barack Obama, we spend far more than we were taking in. But that’s okay, he raised the taxes on the working and middle classes while the rich were untouched.
So it is vital that President Trump makes necessary cuts to the bloated spending of the federal government. It will lower taxes and put funds in place where it’s needed.
The recent revelation of Trump’s spending plan had the liberal world reeling. Not a big surprise, those Socialist cucks reel over a tweet by the man, let alone a major plan to cut spending. A big part of their complaint was that Trump would cut spending for Meals on Wheels, a program that delivers food to the elderly.
What they refused to tell you, though, was that this program received very little from the government in the first place.
From Allen B. West:
Per Fox News, President Trump’s proposed cuts to the popular “Meals on Wheels” program have prompted dire warnings — but they appear to ignore the fact that only a fraction of the program’s budget comes from the government.
A glance at the program’s 2015 financial statement shows the program brought in just over $7.5 million in funding that year, mainly from corporate and foundation grants making up $5.15 million.
Government grants made up just $248,347 of the funding – or 3.3 percent of total funds.
Nonetheless, it didn’t stop the liberal outrage from exploding.
And of that 3.3 percent, it wasn’t directly from the government, only through states who opt to use federal funds to support the program. Most of the money MoW gets comes from donations and corporate financing.
But never let an opportunity for the left to attack Trump. They are so biased, so determined to attack the man over everything, they never fail to embarrass themselves at every turn. That’s just they’re playbook though, ignore the facts, lie, and try to twist your emotions.
The bottom line is our government has been burning through tax payer’s cash to support bloated, corrupt, and failing programs. Meals on Wheels is the least of our problems.
