The Skinny on the Full Budget

by Sherie Sanders on May 30, 2017
Find me on:

White House in an Article About Trump's BudgetThe full version of March's abbreviated or "skinny" federal budget proposal was released this past Tuesday. Historically, presidential budgets rarely get approved in their entirety.  It has become a Washington tradition to declare them dead on arrival, as it is ultimately up to Congress to determine federal spending.

Still, given that the budget proposal reflects an administration's priorities, many people are interested in specifics because they can be an indication of future trends. Below is a list of articles that provide basic details on which programs have been slated for spending reductions and which have been marked for complete elimination.
