This morning I looking over the budget proposed by t-Rump and it's making me ill. It's terrible. These are just the headlines on the homepage of The Washington Post:

Trump’s budget seeks deep cuts

Plan calls for reductions in spending for science, diplomacy and the poor
President Trump’s first budget proposes a $54 billion increase in military spending while seeking significant cuts across much of the rest of the federal government, including reductions of more than 20 percent at the departments of Agriculture, Labor and State, and more than 30 percent at the Environmental Protection Agency.

The Take Analysis
In Trump’s first fiscal blueprint, echoes of Reagan ’81
Unlike former president Bill Clinton’s initiative to reinvent government, Trump’s plan appears to be more expansive, with a goal of finding programs and perhaps whole agencies that could be eliminated.

What the budget would mean for each agency
A graphical presentation illustrates the depths of the president’s proposed budget cuts to a wide swath of federal departments and agencies. Take a detailed look at the impact on each department.

Wonkblog Analysis
What you could do with $54 billion
In search of massive spending cuts to counterbalance the increase in defense spending, President Trump’s budget blueprint proposes the outright elimination of 19 federal agencies, including the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowment for the Arts.

While all of this was rippling over social media -- the monster was in Nashville, Tennesse, This happened:

We are NOT safe with this administration, we are in danger of losing our country. Unemployment will skyrocket. Homelessness will increase..Seniors will starve -- it's really quite dire. With this budget - coupled with the AHCA - people will die. The pResident knows this and doesn't care. He said so last night.

This is NOT acceptable. It is not normal.
