Trump promised to get rid of the liberal programs that are causing “we the people” to see our tax dollars wasted supporting those who won’t help themselves.
He’s keeping his word!
His budget finally addresses those programs without appreciable benefits to show for taxpayer expenditure (per the words of his budget director).
If Congress passes his budget (as we the people want), we will no longer have to pay for useless programs such as Meals On Wheels and school free/reduced lunches.

I’m a senior citizen and I don’t need the government providing me with a meal — those seniors just didn’t plan well for their old age, so why should I have to pay for them?
As to the lunch program, if those kids stay hungry it will increase their desire to make something of themselves as adults.
They need to learn early that there’s no such thing as a “free lunch.”
Thank you, Jesus, for giving us a true man of the people as our leader!
