Looking through this proposed budget is a dizzying exercise

Looking through this proposed budget is a dizzying exercise. It would take a study group to gather enough information about each part of the budget, to merely identify them. If you’ve ever wanted to know what a federal budget entails, look at this. The chart allows you to see the change in dollars over a ten year period, and the percent change. Energy and nutrition appropriations are particularly challenged. And while immigration and border security see gains (see: political posturing), there are also severe cuts to law enforcement and refugee programs. I was saddened to see proposed cuts to healthcare, social security (even if it is .2%) and Native American services. So much to think about. Would you like to form a study group?

Oh, one more: people will die because of this proposal.
