President Trump Just Obliterated 7 MASSIVE Government Programs…Democrats Are REELING!


President Trump Just Obliterated 7 MASSIVE
Government Programs�Democrats Are REELING! This week, Donald Trump submitted his 2018
Taxpayers First Budget. In producing the budget, Mick Mulvaney, the
Director of the Office of Management and Budget, announced that the Trump Administration has
discovered approximately $300 billion in federal spending in programs that have expired. This unauthorized spending has a real impact
on balancing the budget. The Trump administration has not yet announced
a full list of the programs that are unauthorized, but a quick review of the 2018 budget found
11 programs that Trump is terminating because Congress has not renewed the program in some
time. 1. Department of Commerce, Economic Development
Administration The Economic Development Administration spent
$251 million dollars in 2017. This agency�s authority to exist expired
in 2008.2. Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration Grants and Education In 2017, NOAA spent $217 million dollars on
state, local, and/or industry interests (think special interest). 3. Department of Health and Human Services, Community
Services Block Grant The Community Services Block Grant funds approximately
1,000 non-profit and local government organizations to a tune of $714 million dollars. These funds are not tied to performance and
the money has been allocated based on what a state received in 1981. 4. Department of Homeland Security, Port Security
Grants and Transit Security Assistance The 2018 Budget did not mention how much the
individual Port Security Grant program spends each year but did mention it was an unauthorized
program and that the Department�s budget would be reduced. Overall, the 2018 budget eliminates $218 million
from Homeland Security for programs that are being eliminated. 5. Department of Housing and Urban Development,
Choice Neighborhoods The 2018 Budget proposes to eliminate the
$125 million budget of Choice Neighborhoods and allow state and local governments to provide
incentives to private interests to improve neighborhoods. 6. Department of Housing and Urban Development,
Community Development Block Grant The Community Development Block Grant has
spent approximately $150 billion dollars since its inception in 1974. The 2018 budget states that the grants have
not demonstrated a measurable impact. 7. Department of Housing and Urban Development,
Indian Community Development Block Grant This $60 million block grant fund is being
eliminated because it is duplicative and no longer authorized by Congress. This fund authorized grants to Tribes for
the construction of affordable housing. There is no matrix to prove that this grant
actually had any impact on affordable housing. 8. Department of Housing and Urban Development,
Self-Help and Assisted Homeownership Opportunity Program Account In addition to offering duplicative services,
this program has been expired since 2001. For 16 years, this program has been giving
money to non-profit organizations to assist with community development activities. This program will waste $56 Million dollars
in 2017. 9. Department of Justice, State Criminal Alien
Assistance Program This duplicative and unauthorized program
reimburses states and local governments for the cost of incarcerating illegal criminal
aliens. This program is poorly administered in that
the local governments applying for the funds did not actually have to use the funds for
detaining illegal criminal aliens. A large portion of the funds go to New York
and California. 10. Department of Transportation, National Infrastructure
Investments This $499 million discretionary grant program
was part of the 2009 stimulus bill. It spends federal dollars on local projects
with no national or regional interests. This grant program has not been authorized
by Congress for the last two years. 11. Department of Treasury, Community Development
Financial Institutions Fund This program was created in 1994 and is currently
unauthorized. This program was designed to assist in the
expansion of credit for �low-income and underserved people and communities.� This
fund has created 1,100 Treasury-certified CDFIs. The Trump 2018 budget is eliminating the ability
for this program to issue grants but is allowing the program to provide oversight for the 1,100
CDFIs that the program created in the last 23 years.

  2. Let me guess. Persecute the vulnerable, sick and needy, then give tax breaks to the insanely rich. THIS is what ' draining the swamp' means in Trumps mind. Drain the money from the poor and give it to the rich via tax breaks. Great 'swamp draining' ya big Orange TURD !
