Though the governor has also expressed reservations over the House GOP's plan to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Baker said most of the funding changes from ACA repeal would not hit MA until 2019 or 2020, while an on-time federal budget would kick in starting in October.

All of which could affect us here locally.

Trump's $1.1 trillion budget plan, showcasing his administration's priorities, is just the first volley in what will likely be an intense battle over spending in coming months.

It only covers discretional spending, not mandatory spending.

Trump unveiled his first year budget blueprint and it received praise from conservatives wary of and opposed to the healthcare reform bill. "And those have been funded through, again, from the EPA through IDEM to the City of Terre Haute".

Mr Trump's proposed budget has flagged massive cuts to the State Department - including United Nations funding and foreign aid - and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and increased funding to the military and border security.

"Let me ask you a question, do you really think that Social Security Disability Insurance is part of what people think of when they think of Social Security?" he asked. He said he planned to reach out to the state's Congressional delegation and governors of other states with strong links to the NIH to formulate a strategy.

Leicester continue good form with dramatic win at West Ham
Carroll was involved again 14 minutes from time, forcing Schmeichel into a marvellous save down to his left after a bullet header. West Ham's situation was made even worse by Winston Reid's forced withdrawal with a suspected thigh problem in the 18th minute.

The agency is most known for aiding and advising the president and leads the country with foreign policy issues, according to their web page.

Worldwide efforts to tackle climate change could be dealt a blow with the Environmental Protection Agency losing over 30 percent of its budget.

The biggest cuts are to the EPA at 31 percent, and the State Department at 29 percent.

"We as, Midwest grain farmers, we really rely a lot on crop insurance", says Brad Burbrink, a local farmer. I used to be a member of Congress. The president's party is in the middle of an intra-party fight over the American Health Care Act (AHCA), stemming from differing views on how best to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

"I believe that non-defense discretionary spending increased every year except for one during [Bush's] presidency", Bogie said. "And other such things". "In fact, we - we are going to do so". She notes that the administration wants to shift money from low-income Americans to spend more on defense, security and law enforcement.

The $1.1 trillion spending plan includes "big league" winners, like the USA military, which gets a 10 percent boost, the Nuclear Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security, and Veterans Affairs. This is to be paid for by slashing the budgets of 12 of the 15 government departments, and by eliminating funding for 19 arm's length bodies. Trump, by the way, wants to cut federal education spending by 13 percent, but at least there will be plenty of jobs as border agents for our children.

Department of Veterans Affairs: +6%. Does he expect all of these idle employees to go to work in coal mines, on oil pipelines, in Homeland Security and the Army?
