Trump's Budget Explained

vlogbrothers
I don't really know what this budget is meant to do aside from raise military spending dramatically while keeping spending almost exactly the same as it is now. It's remarkable how close they kept the actually dollar amount spent. The Bloomberg article below has the best look at some of the individual programs that are being cut. When looking through sources you might see that different organizations have different numbers for how much has been cut. Different organizations have counted differently. Some don't include the mandatory spending in the number (mandatory spending can increase, but there's no way to stop it from increasing.) I'm bummed about a lot of this budget. A ton of NASA's Earth Science (which is both efficient and valuable) is being scrapped. So many programs that help people who need it, especially the after-school and educational assistance programs. It will be interesting to see how the fight goes in congress.
