Via press release from hate group leader Tony Perkins:
The man who’s responsible for the economic boom knows a thing or two about finance. So maybe, when he sends a budget plan to Congress, they should listen. President Trump was never a politician.
What he was is a successful businessman. For years, he turned companies around and made them profitable — and he could do the same for America, if leaders would give him a chance. There’s just one problem: not much of Congress has the stomach for it.
As every president does at the beginning of the year, Trump released his budget draft — a solid proposal with modest cuts and caps on spending. But usually, the frustration is that the second this gets to Congress, it’s dead on arrival.
That’s a shame, since conservatives desperately want someone with the spine to ax programs we never should be funding in the first place: things like Planned Parenthood, PBS, certain arts endowments, failing education projects, and on and on. But every time members look at cutting something, it ends up in a stalemate with the threat of a government shutdown.
With Trump’s approval ratings at an all-time high, there’s no reason leaders couldn’t take his budget to the floor and tell America, “It’s not ours, it’s his.” Debate it, pass it, and let him sign it. The rest of the country makes difficult decisions with their money every day. It’s time for Congress to do the same.
