Daily Update

The Daily Signal, like most conservatives, raises concerns regarding President Trump’s proposed budget.  Romina Boccia, deputy director of the Thomas A. Roe Institute at The Heritage Foundation, called the budget a “mixed bag.”  Ms. Boccia said this, “The president’s budget makes progress by investing in the military, eliminating numerous ineffective agencies and programs, and beginning the process of welfare and entitlement reform. However, the budget fails to balance, ever, and does not sufficiently move the country away from its currently unsustainable fiscal path.”   Time will tell what happens with his proposal. PBS is naturally upset, but cutting PBS from the budget, makes many conservatives cheer. 

Here is another topic that makes conservatives cheer;  Reforming The Bureaucracy: How Trump Is Taming The Leviathan.
