President Trump should consider CBC budget if he’s serious about helping Black America
A nation’s budget is a document that reflects its priorities. While President Trump has yet to submit his first budget to Congress, we are already learning what will likely be in it. The President has proposed a $54 billion increase in military spending, which would be offset with deep cuts to programs that support education, rebuild our infrastructure, ensure clean air and water, and protect workplace safety and public health. On top of that, the President has called for massive tax cuts that would primarily benefit the wealthiest among us and put the nation’s finances deeper in the red.
