The President’s 2020 budget, could lead to another Gov’t shutdown…

Today the White House is expected to release President Trump’s 2020 fiscal budget plan. What’s in it has some saying that we could be dealing with another partial government shutdown in October.

The proposal would add $5 Billion for the Department of Homeland Department. It also includes some $3 Billion for the Department of Defense. It calls for a 5% cut to all non defense domestic programs and it calls for $8.6 Billion dollars for his controversial US Mexico border wall. It’s was a sticking point during the last budget debate and it lead to the longest partial government shut down in US history. Democrats are warning the President that nothing has changed on their opposition to using tax payer money to find his wall and that they hoped he has learned his lesson.
