No greatness here: Trump budget will make Americans ache

Last week the new administration’s budget was unveiled to members of Congress and the American public, and like everything that has spawned from this administration thus far, my response has been one of amazement and disgust — amazement that people holding public office so callously create, support, or dismantle programs that result in adversely affecting millions of American citizens, and disgust that right-wing conservatives continually focus on enriching the military industrial complex, Wall Street, and themselves on the backs of the poor and middle class.

The hype spewed by Trump and his posse is that these measures will “make America great again.” Critical thinking dispels this promise. Those who buy into Trump-Bannon propaganda are in for a rude awakening.
