If you care about our country, and have chosen to be informed, you are aware that Trumpcare, Trump’s budget proposal, and his blueprint for repairing the nation’s infrastructure are all gifts to himself. They will do nothing for the American people, but will add millions to his personal bank account and those of the other one-percent of wealthiest Americans.
His budget will remove money from Americans who need it most. Reducing funds from Medicaid, and programs such as “Meals on Wheels” will harm many Americans who supported Trump. One part of this destructive plan was revealed today.
His budget would greatly reduce funding for programs which shelter the poor and combat homelessness. However, there is one exception. “It leaves intact a type of federal housing subsidy that is paid directly to private landlords.”
This will once again benefit Trump, who is a part owner of Starrett City, the nation’s largest subsidized housing complex. Trump profited at least five million dollars between January of 2016 and April 15th of this year from his partial ownership.
Trumpcare gives additional tax incentives to Trump and other billionaires. You may have heard that Trump is proposing one trillion dollars to repair our infrastructure. Experts believe the the needed amount is three trillion dollars.
But here’s the interesting fact. Of that one trillion dollars, only 200 million would go to construction projects. The other 800 million would be tax cuts. Guess who would receive those tax cuts; you guessed it, Trump and the other members of the one-percent club.
Why isn’t the media exposing Donald Trump as the most corrupt and immoral man ever to defile the White House? Are they afraid? This is far more important than the investigation into his collusion with Russia, and far more important than what lies Sean Spicer told today.
If you consider yourself intelligent and continue to support Trump, you are mistaken. You would fail an IQ test.
Please re-post; thank you.
