So keep the rage on the burner I guess. I care less about the vulnerable than I do about fake news, which helps Trump enormously:

Reported: Trump is killing Meals On Wheels!

Truth: We would like to defund Community Development Block Grants, which pays enough into Meals On Wheels to use it as a Big Bird shield.


White House budget director Mick Mulvaney wrote:

We can’t spend money on programs just because they sound good. And Meals on Wheels sounds great — again, that’s a state decision to fund that particular portion to. But to take the federal money and give it to the states and say, look, we want to give you money for programs that don’t work — I can’t defend that anymore. We cannot defend that anymore. We’re $20 trillion in debt. We’re going to spend money, we’re going to spend a lot of money, but we’re not going to spend it on programs that cannot show that they actually deliver the promises that we’ve made to people.”


So you're right, it's not precise to say Meals on Wheels is having federal funding cut off, we should instead say that Meals on Wheels and other Community Development programs are having their federal funding cut off, and this is the full intention of the Trump budget.

Jesus Fucking Christ what a dumb hair to split.
