Trump’s New Budget Slashes Medicare and Bolsters Military in an “Attack on the Poor & Middle Class”

Donald Trump’s new budget proposal has drawn criticism for its cuts to Medicare and increase in military spending. The budget slashes $845 billion from Medicare over the next decade, which would affect elderly and low-income Americans who rely on the healthcare program. Meanwhile, the budget proposes a $2 billion increase in military spending, bringing the total to $740.5 billion. Critics have called the budget an “attack on the poor and middle class,” as it prioritizes military spending over healthcare and social welfare programs. The budget also includes cuts to Medicaid, food stamps, and other safety net programs.
