    Interesting how you and the fake news outlets do everything to play down the parts about the attempts by the Trump administration to balance the budget by large spending cuts

      How is it that you as democrats pretend to be so concerned about spending yet simultaneously your possible front runner for 2020 is a socialist who proposed a $33 trillion healthcare plan?

      So you admit that Bernie wants to massively increase spending and raise taxes. Got it.

    • You lose all credibility by using the term “fake news outlets”.

      Sure better than the “fiscally responsible” party that raising more military spending while cutting tax on the wealthy while funding all the spending through national debt.

      @Lyft CNN and NYT lost credibility when they’re currently involved in a $250 million lawsuit over lying about and slandering catholic school students

      OP
      That's a frivolous lawsuit that exists to generate news stories for Fox.

      Meanwhile Trump is proposing to waste real tax dollars. Fortunately he will be stopped by saner people in the House.

      I just caught up on the news on that. Apparently they haven’t sued them (yet). The only thing they’ve done is making legal threats and CNN is not backing down on the threat.

      I think the likely scenario is the lawsuit get thrown out by judge.

      Or there was a mistake make and they get $2,500 instead of $250,000,000

      To nobody's surprise, Trump's numbers don't add up. Balanced budget in 15 years and his idiot supporters seriously believe that? The mind boggles at the delusion.

    Neither party is, as a whole, fiscally responsible.

      The proof is in the debt. Plenty of "changes of the guard" with lots of blaming and no results

    Why do we need even more defense budget? Are we at war? Or did we start another one?

      You lack any kind of grasp of international relations or history.

      You lack any sense of responsible governance. Stop fighting never ending wars!

      Your conclusion doesn’t follow. I am as much against a never ending wars and pursuing neo liberal Hegemony in general as anyone. We could reduce our spending but we still need to the most powerful military as a deterrent. No other democratic country is up to the job right now

      The most powerful military that ever existed needs more budget.

      LOL only an idiot would look past the military industrial complex's lobbying efforts.

      I don’t think it needs more budget, I’m sure we could do more with less. All I’m saying is relinquish your status as the dominant security force on the planet at your own peril. If you’re for peace you should support US security dominance

      But tje tiny hands, bone spur moron said the US would stop paying to be the world's enforcer.

      Also the fear mongering is useless

      You guys should read up about political realism. When you’re ready to grow up you realize that diplomacy is meaningless without a credible deterrent. It’s it’s not the planet I want to live on I’m acknowledging the reality of the one we do

      In a nuclear age, military deterrents have little impact.

      As soon as you realize that, you will understand International Relations.

      Please educate yourself. MAD preserves the survival of the state and little more.

      Case in point, just yesterday peacenik merkel supported building an EU aircraft carrier...

    Trump is used to getting stuff free from daddy and taxpayers. No wonder he has zero appreciation for hard work it takes to earn $$ or build something with his own $$

    Who wants to bet me that the final budget will be less than what Trump proposes? (It won’t) Also it’s so sad that the NYT is become the new fox of the left

    Don’t get too worried. Congress will change many things

    Welcome to civics 101. President proposes. Congress disposes of the proposal and rewrites it to reflect reality.
