I believe former POTUS Barack Obama to be a decent president, and with all of the good and bad aspects of his presidency, the very worst part of it was the devastating rise of the nations' national debt.
Recently, President Donald Trump has proposed a budget that, although is very controversial, seems to actually be a good fix for the issue. The reason for such controversy is due to the deep cuts of entitlement programs, which include Medicaid, nutritional assistance, and welfare.
However, although I don't agree with necessarily defunding or slashing a great amount of funding of such programs, it is necessary to cut back on them and focus on getting American citizens off these programs and into employment and stable socioeconomic lives. I also believe that it is essential to be fiscally responsible and take action on relieving the massive debt this country is in, even if it means to take risk and lower funding for social programs.
Many believe this plan to be the most conservative plan the U.S. has had in decades, some comparing it to (R) Ronald Reagan's economic plan. Donald Trump isn't the traditional 1980s GOP conservative who's an advocate of trickle-down economics and social conservatism, if anything, he's a moderate conservative who made promises based on populism to working class individuals, rather than conservatism.
If the plan succeeds, it'll cut trillions of dollars from the national debt, though the many citizens who are recipients of government aid, which include a fraction of his supporters, will have to suffer to a certain extent from these cuts.
However, the outcome will have good results, as the sooner the country takes care of its debt, the sooner it can take action on becoming more fiscally responsible and spending money on the right things that are needed, which includes social programs but only to the extent of aiding hard working individuals who have a hard time getting by. Any thoughts?
