Washington (CNN) — President Donald Trump unveiled his first budget blueprint on Thursday, and to offset increases in defense spending, the President is proposing $54 billion in cuts to large parts of the federal government and popular programs big and small.
Trump’s budget would cut off funding entirely for several agencies, including arts, public broadcasting and development groups, and also proposes steep cuts to agencies like the State Department and Environmental Protection Agency.
Virtually every agency will see some sort of cut, with only Defense, Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs getting a boost.
Congress will have the final say, and lawmakers have already expressed opposition to many of the proposals.
Thank god it has to go through Congress. Don’t forget he wants to pump up military spending by $54 billion, too.

Me: I’d rather get a little puppy dog than another cat. What do you think about that?
Maggie: Yeah, that’d be pretty cool.
Me: You’d have to help me take care of it though.
Maggie: Well, let’s not rush into anything.
