Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten and his Republican Reich have released their budget. The GOP Nazi word for Vaseline is Vienerschleider, and if you don’t know hat that has to do with a Republican budget, it’s time for you to bend over and grab your ankles. You’re about to find out in the worst possible way.

I swear! They get more disgusting by the minute. I have been sharing and signing as many petitions as possible. Talking to my Texas reps is futile as they are all extremely red Republicans.
Thank you TomCat.

Well, that should make SNAP recipients MUCH happier, since they won't have to have people on grocery stores looking down on them for their choices. Oh, wait ...

I assume everyone can hear the snark dripping from my first sentence. I haven't even yet mentioned what an issue that could create for people who have food allergies or sensitivities. Oh, well, Republicans want the poor to die, and this should facilitate that bigly.

Remember: In May 2015, Candidate Trump tweeted, “I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid.” And in an April 2016 ad that ran in Pennsylvania he promised to “save Social Security and Medicare without cuts.” [Editorial Board, NYT 12]

And Mulvaney said on this budget, that despite cuts in Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid the enormous amount of billions to be spend extra on the military would increase the deficit with a few more trillions, that he could have balanced the budget, but that the numbers would have looked funny. Funny? Are they all gone insane in the Drumpf administration?

Before long it’s back to the soup kitchens of the Great Depression for the poor, which will be a large part of US citizens. And forget about the Vaseline, you won’t be able to afford it. You’ll have to take it as it comes if this administration and Congress gets their way. So:

The box of canned goods sounds nice - until you realize who will be controlling what gets sent. Also, some foods are not healthful when canned.

RESIST, PERSIST, INSIST, and above all, VOTE! Rise up and end the totally unethical and immoral war on the poor!

"On Monday, the Trump administration proposed cutting food stamps, formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, by $17 billion in 2019 and more than $213 billion over the next decade."

Take from the poor and give to the already obscenely wealthy and corporations in the form of tax cuts and military contracts (14% increase in military spending and 12% increase for Homeland). As Lona notes above from a NY Times editorial, candidate Drumpf tweeted " “I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid.”" which amounts to yet ANOTHER LIE from the Orange Ogre, and by extension, Republicans.

Republicans are content to raise the deficit, something they fiercely fought against during Obama's presidency (he actually reduced the deficit which had been jacked up by wars on the country's credit card during Baby Bush's reign). And they are willing to do so at the expense of the most disadvantaged in society.

Many of Drumpf's supporters are in the category of the least educated and working class and elderly who believed his "drain the swamp" speech and his "I work for the American people" shtick. I wonder how many of them are starting to see Drumpf and Republicans in their true light?

Drumpf parks his fat ass on a golden throne while others search for a regular throne to use! Drumpf is a racist, bigoted, xenophobic, narcissistic, lying asshole!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!
