Posted by: | Posted on: May 24, 2017

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., praised President Trump’s budget blueprint Tuesday night, telling Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum” that “the aspiration and the goal is right on the target.”

The blueprint drawn up by OMB Director Mick Mulvaney has been criticized by Democrats and Republicans alike for its proposed $3.6 trillion cuts from an array of benefit programs, domestic agencies and war spending over the next decade. Those proposed cuts include more than $600 billion in Medicaid payments and $191 billion in food stamp benefits.
