Get a load of this.
“Some of President Trump’s top aides, who assume he will be re-elected,are already planning for an epic 2021 spending battle.
What’s happening: Senior administration officials — including acting Office of Management and Budget director Russ Vought and fiscally conservative chief Mick Mulvaney — have told Republicans that the president doesn’t want Congress to strike a spending deal in September when current funding runs out. Instead, Team Trump wants a short-term solution to preserve the ability to fight for massive spending cuts in the fifth year of a Trump presidency. …
Why it matters: Some senior administration officials envision a newly re-elected Trump liberated to slash spending. They view 2021 as the year to have that fight — the final year in which the president can threaten hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of automatic spending cuts known as the sequester. (These automatic cuts, which attack both defense and domestic spending, expire in 2021.) …
Aides say Trump wants to spend more on the military, veterans’ programs, NASA, infrastructure and border security.
The bottom line: Trump will entertain cutting almost anything else. “The president feels like he’s had to give up ransom” to Democrats, who pressured him to increase domestic spending in exchange for more spending on the military and border security, an administration official told me.”
Oh, I see.
Blompf’s reelection strategy makes sense now.
The plan is to run on the “capitalism vs. socialism” narrative in order to rally the Boomers by scaring them into believing that Blompf has to be reelected to stop China, Venezuela and Iran from imposing socialism on the United States and destroying the American economy.
After the battle against “socialism” is won, the plan is to dramatically cut federal spending – health care, education, environment, federal oversight of the private sector, etc. – so that even more money can be spent on Israel and the Pentagon’s foreign wars than is currently the case now.
“Sign of the times: The top advocate for corporate America, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has installed a sign on the front steps of its headquarters in Washington, D.C., comparing Donald Trump to Ronald Reagan and Dwight Eisenhower. Their building is right near the White House. …”
It remains to be seen whether Blompf will preside over a greater influx of illegal aliens than Ronald Reagan. He might well surpass Reagan and George W. Bush in that respect and become the greatest president ever in the eyes of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for all he has done to cut taxes on the wealthy, slash federal spending, deregulate the economy and preside over a massive influx of cheap labor and escalation of political correctness while pretending to oppose it.
What are we going to do about this?
Forget the fact that Blompf is wanting to dramatically slash federal spending on non-Israel related parts of the budget. He wants to slash funds for education and health care in the context of automation ripping its way like a buzzsaw through the White working class and middle class.
Note: Fortunately, a challenger has arisen with a new strategy!
