Trump unveils FY2019 budget proposals

Russian Federation already looking to interfere in 2018 midterms Dems pick up deep-red legislative seat in Missouri Speier on Trump's desire for military parade: "We have a Napoleon in the making" MORE is still "open" to increasing the gas tax as a means to create revenue for new infrastructure projects, according to a key GOP chairman. Some beneficiaries of Social Security's disability program would have to re-enter the workforce under proposed changes to eligibility rules.

Trump's plan aims at other familiar targets.

The Trump administration says, however, that Congress need not spend all of the money called for under the deal, particularly with regard to domestic spending.

Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the Senate's top Democrat, said yesterday, saying municipalities would be forced to adopt "Trump tolls".

The FY 2019 HHS budget includes $256 million to consolidate the activities of AHRQ, which supports health services research addressing patient safety and healthcare quality as well as the application of HIT, into the National Institutes of Health-as the National Institute for Research on Safety and Quality (NIRSQ)-to eliminate duplication and redundancies.

"The American people are just beginning to feel the benefits of the recently passed tax cuts bill", Gardner said.

The White House is releasing a 55-page "legislative outline" on the proposal, which envisions spurring $1.5 trillion in spending over a decade to rebuild roads, highways and airports.

Nepal Leader KP Sharma Oli to Take over As Prime Minister
The Communist leader is expected to take the oath of office later today, presidential secretary Bhesh Raj Adhikari said. He was the Prime Minister from October 11, 2015 to August 4, 2016.

The administration's fiscal plan likely will have little real impact once debate begins in Congress, where lawmakers may find it hard to impose some of the big program cuts. But any tax increase would represent a political risk for members of Congress in an election year.

Last year Trump's budget promised such ideas could generate a small budget surplus by 2027; now, his best-case scenario is for a $450 billion deficit that year, more than $300 billion of which can be traced to his December tax cut.

For many, the last straw is the deficit.

The spending plan was based on estimates that the USA economy would grow by three per cent annually for the next six years, a rate many economists described as unrealistic even given the short-term bump from the massive tax cuts approved in December. Trump's request previous year for 74 miles of wall in San Diego and the Rio Grande Valley is pending before lawmakers right now.

Republicans on Capitol Hill praised the document for adhering to the themes - if not the specifics - of Trump's presidential campaign.
