AP FACT CHECK: No Medicaid cuts in Trump budget? Really?

Trump budget chief defends plan in face of opposition

To explain why baseline budgeting needs to be retired, Mulvaney used the example of a program that cost $100 previous year. In 2013, 53% of Republicans and Republican leaners said they would decrease spending for such assistance, compared with 16% among Democrats and Democratic leaners. She says Monday's bombing at a concert in Manchester, England, is proof of the ongoing threats.

Despite promises to protect Medicaid and other services, the proposed budget slashes $800 billion from Medicaid, $192 billion from nutritional assistance, $272 billion over all from welfare programs, and bars undocumented immigrants from collecting the child and dependent care tax credit all to make room for the president's devastatingly unnecessary border wall.

Republicans are under pressure to deliver on promised tax cuts, the cornerstone of the Trump administration's economic agenda.

Mnuchin says the tax plan is being crafted in a way that would cut taxes on the "high end" and eliminate all deductions other than those for mortgage interest payments and charitable donations.

Trumponomics is anything that can get the US economy soaring to 3 percent growth, the administration's top economic advisers told Congress this week, saying the only way the federal government can balance its books is to get the economy humming that fast.

If tax receipts are coming in slower than expected, this could raise pressure on lawmakers to raise or suspend the debt ceiling by the August recess. The tax gap in 2016 was $486 billion - out of the expected revenue from income and corporate taxes of roughly $1.9 trillion. "We don't want to measure compassion by the number of programs we have and the number of people on them".

"If we don't get to 3 percent growth, it's unlikely we'll ever get a balanced budget again", Mulvaney said, classifying skeptics as "pessimistic".

Trump's budget holds true to his campaign pledge to leave Medicare and Social Security pension benefits alone and contains spending increases for the military and veterans, but it treats most of the rest of the government as fair game.

"If states get fewer dollars from the federal government, there are only so many options, because states have to balance the budget every year", said Elizabeth Carpenter, a health policy expert with the consulting firm Avalare Health.

Democrats and other analysts are skeptical about the 3 percent forecast, which the administration includes in the second half of the 10-year budget window they use. What President Donald Trump wants to do is merely slow the growth of Medicaid spending, he said.

"It's a taxpayer-first budget", Mulvaney said.

Mulvaney told the House Budget Committee that "receipts now are coming a little bit slower than expected".

South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford told White House budget director Mick Mulvaney that Trump's budget "presumes a Goldilocks economy" that never goes into recession. That 3 percent growth rate is stimulated by the lower taxes proposed in the budget.

The budget also slashes funding for other low-income assistance programs, the State Department, worldwide aid and the Department of Education. He said less money isn't being spent during one year as the year before.
