Democrats didn’t think Donald would dare downsize them – here he comes.
Democrats deny America border wall by claiming there just isn’t any money. Oh really?
Then where do they get the money to spend billions on wasteful programs? Or government agencies that do nothing to help Americans?
President Trump is saying enough to this charade. And he’s decided to get his wall money by slashing the budget of one of the left’s favorite agencies: the EPA.
But wait until you see how much he wants to cut!
From Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump’s fiscal year 2020 budget calls for huge reductions in Environmental Protection Agency and Energy Department spending in order to pay for wall construction on the U.S.-Mexico border…
In one specific piece of the proposal, the president is asking to slash the EPA’s budget by 31 percent… Trump’s budget would cut the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office… from $2.3 billion to about $700 million — a 70 percent reduction.
Trump would take well over $1 BILLION from Democrats’ favorite agency and put it right into building the wall.
Let’s look at the big picture. The EPA was created (by Republican Richard Nixon) to protect human health and environment.
But today, thanks to Obama, the agency is more about passing strict regulations that hurt businesses and the economy.
As a former contractor for the EPA, I can tell you they waste an incredible amount of money. With very little to show for it.
This was the same agency who, a few years back, was responsible for poisoning the Colorado River and tainting the water of Flint, Michigan.
The United States has plenty of laws protecting our environment. Laws that, ironically, were passed by Congress and past presidents.
They have little to do with the EPA, a bloated, runaway agency.
Cutting their budget to protect our border is something few patriots will disagree with. What do you think?
SHARE if you think the border wall is more important than the EPA’s costly seminars and retreats!
