The reality is that if Congress were to accept these numbers - which it can't possibly do - America would be made dumber, dirtier, hungrier and sicker. In a nutshell, there is a $54 billion reduction in non-Defense programs. Other big losers: the Agriculture and Labor departments, whose budget would both be cut by 21 percent, and the Department of Health and Services, whose funding would be slashed by 18 percent.

Thankfully, the radical steps in Trump's budget likely won't be realized. Sen.

Yet an early supporter of Trump, Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa., called the idea of cutting after-school programs "misguided" in a letter to White House budget director Mick Mulvaney. We're not spending money on that anymore. "The answer was no".

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf's administration "rejects the notion of shifting funds from already under-resourced public schools to fund vouchers for private education", said Reigelman. That would be gone under the new budget.

The budget would eliminate taxpayer funding altogether for 19 small agencies, including the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities and Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which funds PBS and NPR.
