Who Wins and Loses in Trump’s Proposed Budget
Mr Trump's budget gives his supporters exactly what they have been asking for: more money for the military and less for everyone else. Elections have consequences.
         Sadly, he will also cut most funding for the arts, but that is politically okay: his affluent supporters can afford to pay for their arts without government help and his working-class rural base does not consume any of the arts.
         The only real tragedy will be the loss of PBS/NPR funding, since it may damage one of the few non-partisan news sources left in America.
