The latest Republican budget will leave 23 million Americans uninsured and raise costs dramatically for many more, infers Bob Bryan of Business Insider. He suggests that the plan would leave the most vulnerable without needed health care by punishing those with pre-existing conditions. Americans with mental health problems and those fighting substance abuse would be left to fend for themselves. This reduced care would be accompanied by unjustifiably higher costs across the board. Bryan holds that Trump’s new budget plan doesn't justify any of its downsides and would be detrimental to the country.
President Trump’s new budget is exactly what the American economy needs by reigning in reckless spending and encouraging growth, argues Richard Manning of Fox News. He claims that Trump’s plan doesn’t cut social security or medicare for the elderly yet tackles the $20 trillion debt that Obama’s administration amassed. By reforming taxes, negotiating new trade deals and focusing on job growth, Trump can achieve an economic growth rate of 3%. Manning stresses that the US will suffer immensely if it lets its debt balloon even further, which is exactly what Trump’s budget will prevent from happening.
