Budget Details...

The nearly four-trillion-dollar blue-print is being called a "taxpayer first" proposal.

The White House says it's looking at President Trump's first big budget with the American taxpayer in mind. It’s a nearly four-trillion dollar blueprint that makes deep cuts in social programs while boosting defense and border spending.

White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney called it a "taxpayer first budget." He said it was put together through the eyes of the people who pay the bills in the U.S. Mulvaney argued that the budget reflects the President's priorities and insisted that Social Security and Medicare are unaffected.

Democrats disagree - and are slamming President Trump's first big budget proposal to Congress. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said it takes a sledge hammer to the middle class while giving big tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans. Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth [[YAR-muth]] called it a "betrayal of hopes and dreams."
