Shore up has always been a racist place. You can't get a job there if you are white. Very discriminatory.

It also removes funding for special education in schools through Medicare cuts. Bet you didn't read into that

Good 9:19 though I think you may mean MediCAID. It's all a crock anyway. You people need to wise up. It's all about giving children fake diagnoses so then they can take modified tests. When they take the modified tests they score higher. Then it looks like the school is performing better then it is. Some high schoolers have what is known as "test anxiety" so they have to have the test questions read to them. The real story is they can't read.

Bottom line - We need significant cuts and some good programs will lose money and possibly disappear. Thankful we have an administration that has the ability to do what is needed.

Eliminate the Dept of Education. Then take the IRS out. BILLIONS would be saved.

Cut the budget of EVERY Congressman. Slash spending like it was our money you are spending.

America first. Americans first.
