The White House says it is calling for a total $48.4 billion in reduced spending on discretionary programs so it can
give the rich more tax cuts.

The US has been capable of sending heavy payloads into space for 50 years. With these new tax cuts the rich can now
afford to send electric cars into space more often.

The working class generates wealth and the rich oligarchs of the US take as much of it as they can.
The working class has benefits taken away and the rich reap the benefits. That's capitalism at work.

What billinaire ever worked 20,000 times longer or harder than the average working class American for each of those billions?
None of course. The oligarchs of America are thieves and parasites.

The US needs to change its name to the OA (Oligarchy of America).

President Trump’s 2019 priorities would conflict with the two-year budget deal that Congress passed last week, which called for increases in both military and other domestic spending.

The White House says it is calling for a total $48.4 billion in reduced spending on discretionary programs. Here are some of the major programs that would be slashed under the president’s budget, along with their current cost—and the amount that would be saved by individual Americans on a per-person basis:

Tax the rich accordingly and the working class can double their meager salaries overnight while the rich
can still live anywhere they want and eat anything they want and hire all the prostitutes they want.
They may not be able to send their electric cars into space though.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Lack of a decent living environment, lack of adequate health care, lack of opportunity to name a few.

Are you really so dense?
