Trump asks Democrats to negotiate on infrastructure plan

President Trump on Monday released his proposed Fiscal Year 2019 budget for the Department of Health and Human Services, suggesting the elimination of funding for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and slashing budgets for the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT and HHS Office for Civil Rights. "There is a way out of this".

The budget was no surprise given Mr Trump's priorities. Come back with a proposal.

While running for president in 2016, Trump pledged to leave popular benefit programs such as Medicare and Social Security untouched, but his new budget proposal would reduce Medicare spending by $236 billion over the next 10 years. "He is not just failing to help the "forgotten" men and women he promised to prioritize - this budget actually makes their lives harder".

The president said the aluminum and steel industries are "being decimated by dumping" by foreign countries and said if the USA was ever in a military conflict, "we don't want to be buying steel from a country that we're fighting". "We have been putting together some options, we will send them up to the White House for decision".

"I think you're going to maybe see a little different take on it coming through the next coming weeks or so because the president very much understood that we've got to figure out how to pay for this", Shuster said. "These are real numbers".

This time, the White House is grappling with the fallout from the departure of a senior aide after spousal abuse allegations, which has dominated the political dialogue since last week.

It calls for spending $57 billion less in fiscal year 2019 than mandated in a two-year budget deal passed last week by Congress that raised spending limits on both military and domestic programs by $300 billion.

HHS said that the Obamacare repeal provisions contained in the budget would save nearly $680 billion over the next decade. "The budget may not matter as a policy matter, but it demonstrates the direction the White House is striving for".

Like previous year, ONC's budget took a deep 37% cut. "However, the budget fails to balance, ever, and does not sufficiently move the country away from its now unsustainable fiscal path", she said.

$716 billion for national defense.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., says the president's plan would raise tolls on commuters, increase the burden on cities and states, and sell essential infrastructure to the whims of Wall Street. The majority of the funds are marked for increased border security, including $1.6 billion for the construction of a wall on America's southern border. "With 99 percent of American wind farms built in rural areas, an investment in transmission infrastructure boosts rural economies while improving resilience and reliability, delivering low-priced power to consumers and strengthening USA energy dominance".

$571 million to hire 2,000 additional Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers and agents. The budget also includes cutting SNAP funding by roughly $213 billion, or 30 percent, over the next 10 years.

The new budget calls for about $35 billion for the agency, roughly consistent with a year ago. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

It is also created to ease the permitting process for starting infrastructure projects, but Trump stressed that it would be up to governors, city managers and mayors to ensure they get the permitting process done in time.
