    At a news briefing this week, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney continued to push the Trump administration’s goal of cutting back on Obama-era regulations. On Thursday, Mulvaney unveiled a “secret list” of proposed federal rules that he said the Obama administration had been hoping to implement. “They had a bunch of things that they wanted to regulate. And what we’re hearing is that they just didn’t want to tell you about it,” said Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget. “They thought it would be bad for their re-election prospects in 2012, so they created a secret...

    When President Donald Trump took office, there were over 800 proposed regulations left over by his predecessor. On Thursday, the White House announced it had withdrawn every single one of them in an effort to chip away at the burden of government regulations. The Trump administration said former President Barack Obama’s administration left 469 planned actions and 391 proposed “regulatory proceedings,” according to Reuters. White House budget director Mick Mulvaney put it like this: the Trump administration is killing the “slow cancer that can come from regulatory burdens that we put on our people." {..snip..}
  • Trump Admin Orders Federal Agencies to Eliminate Dozens of Paperwork Requirements

    06/15/2017 2:49:02 PM PDT · by ColdOne · 5 replies ^ | 6/15/17 | Cameron Cawthorne
    The Trump administration announced on Thursday it would be eliminating an obscure rule requiring federal agencies to provide updates on how they will prepare for a bug that infected computers in 2000. In addition to eliminating the Y2K bug rule, agencies will also be eradicating dozens of other paperwork requirements. For example, the Pentagon will not have to file a report each time a small business vendor is paid, which consumes approximately 1,200 man hours, according to Bloomberg. "We're looking for stuff everyone agrees is a complete waste of time," Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 5/23/2017 | Staff
    Big Government: President Trump's budget is taking its share of hits for supposedly indulging in fanciful accounting, unrealistic assumptions and proposing massive cuts to vital safety-net programs. How much of that is true? You decide. Trump's budget plan proposes to balance the federal budget in 10 years and do so entirely through spending restraint. That alone is enough to raise the hackles of the Washington, D.C., swamp creatures. But critics have other complaints. The main ones: It relies on unrealistic economic projections. Critics say Trump's budget numbers rest on a rosy scenario of future economic growth. The New York Times...

    President Trump's fiscal 2018 budget proposal would completely eliminate 66 federal programs, for a savings of $26.7 billion. Some of the programs would receive funding for 2018 as part of a phasing-out plan. Here are the programs the administration wants on the chopping block. Agriculture Department — $855 million · McGovern-Dole International Food for Education · Rural Business-Cooperative Service · Rural Water and Waste Disposal Program Account · Single Family Housing Direct Loans Commerce Department — $633 million · Economic Development Administration · Manufacturing Extension Partnership · Minority Business Development Agency · National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Grants and Education...

    Tuesday Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump’s budget was dead on arrival. In a statement, McCain said, “President Trump’s $603 billion defense budget request is inadequate to the challenges we face, illegal under current law, and part of an overall budget proposal that is dead on arrival in Congress.”

    This budget will separate the men from the boys. As Trump releases a Reagan budget, the Republican posers are going to have to piss or get off the pot. As he finally does what they’ve promised to do, we’ll see where people really stand. Because the Trump budget is what Republicans have preached and campaigned on for decades. And now he’s called their bluff. It charts a course to balance. It fights welfare dependency. It builds our military and strengthens our borders. It pushes back against suffocating regulation and the agencies that impose it. It pulls the federal government out...

    The Budget He knows folks. He knows its coming, and yet he's going to take it out of your ass, and he has the entire GOP with him in doing it too. What's "it"? The medical cost explosion, which has run about 9% compounded for the last 30 years or so and which shows exactly no sign of slowing down, as I've noted repeatedly. In fact Obamacare only got one year of flat spending in Medicare and Medicaid. One. After which it went right back to where it was. As I have repeatedly shown by the numbers just taking one...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | May 22, 2017 | By Joel Connelly
    The budget proposed by President Trump, set for release Tuesday, is clear from coast to coast to coast: Don't clean up the water. The budget not only zeroes out the Puget Sound cleanup, but programs from Louisiana's Lake Pontchartrain to New England's Lake Champlain to the Great Lakes. The information on axing of cleanup money was obtained by the National Association of Clean Air Agencies, and comes directly from an administration document. Overall, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency budget would be slashed from $8.2 billion to $5.6 billion, a 30 percent-plus cut.

He’s a former member of the Congress, of the House. He’s a Tea Party type. He’s a good guy. I have met the Budget Director Mulvaney. I liked him very much. He just had a press conference announcing the details of the Trump budget, and I heard him say things that you just don’t hear said in Washington explaining budgets. He said that this budget, the Trump budget...
  • Trump Makes 'Highest' Budget Request for Anti-Drug Programs Called Duplicative by OMB

    05/23/2017 12:25:53 PM PDT · by deplorableindc · 25 replies
    President Donald Trump is seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in funding for two anti-drug grant programs that the White House Office of Management and Budget called “duplicative” and worthy of elimination. After swift push-back from lawmakers and outside interest groups earlier this month, Trump sent Congress "the highest funding amounts ever requested" for the two programs, according to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. If Congress agrees, funding for the Drug-Free Communities grant program, which seeks to prevent youth drug use, would be $91.9 million in fiscal 2018. Grants for law enforcement task forces called High...

    “The National Science Foundation last year used your taxpayer money to fund a climate change musical. Do you think that’s a waste of your money?” asked the director of Office of Management and Budget director, Mick Mulvaney, during a White House briefing on Tuesday. He also noted the cuts to climate change research, saying that, under President Barack Obama, the “pendulum went too far to one side” and the government spent too much on climate science. “Does it mean that we are anti-science? Absolutely not,” he said. “We are simply trying to get things back in order to where we...

    The Trump administration wants to impose a work requirement on able-bodied adults who receive food stamps and force states to pick up some of the costs as part of a wider plan to slash spending by $3.6 trillion over the next decade. Budget director Mick Mulvaney said that once states have “a little skin in the game,” they will be more inclined to root out abuses and waste in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Enrollments haven’t decreased much since the recession despite a low 4.5 percent unemployment rate. The program cost about $33 billion in 2007 with 26 million...

    Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney said Tuesday that a wall is being built right now on the Mexican border. MICK MULVANEY: The president delivered on his promises and got his priorities funded, and that's what the Democrats don't want you to know. They want you to think they won, but they don't want you to know the American people won here because the president simply out-negotiated them. And we're going to build this. There are several hundreds of millions of dollars for us to replace cyclone fencing with 20-foot high steel wall. There's several hundreds...

    President Trump didn’t get funding for a brick-and-mortar border wall in the spending deal with Democrats — but he got money to build a 20-foot-high steel wall, the White House budget chief said Tuesday. “That’s what we got in this deal and that’s what Democrats don’t want you to know,” Mick Mulvaney, director of the president’s budget office, said at the daily White House press briefing. “There’s several hundred of millions of dollars for us to replace cyclone fencing with 20-foot high steel wall,” he said, pointing to a photograph of an existing stretch of the towering steel barrier along...

    Mick Mulvaney, the budget director, is currently having a press conference. I was watching it, and learned for the first time, that there is several hundreds of millions of dollars in the budget, for ramping up fencing on the border (now) upgrading to a 20-foot structurally sound, actual border. This is the first I had heard of that. It seems the President is looking at playing much harder ball in September. It seems the 2017 budget was closed, as of the budget agreement. I am much, much happier than I was a couple of days ago. Good discussion Mr. Mulvaney,...

    White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney took the podium at Tuesday's press briefing to blast Democrats for pushing back on President Trump's "tremendous" budget proposal. "They wanted a shutdown," Mulvaney said of Democrats. "We know that. They were desperate to make this administration look like we couldn't function, like we couldn't govern." Despite Democrats' bad behavior, Mulvaney claimed Trump "out-negotiated" them anyway. Mulvaney insisted the bill that Congress agreed on late Sunday to fund the government through September contains no "new money" for Puerto Rico, no renewable energy subsidies, and no "ObamaCare bailout money," all of which Democrats wanted. Unlike...

    President Trump's budget chief, Mick Mulvaney, said Friday that the White House is offering Democrats money for key ObamaCare payments in exchange for money to help fund the president's proposed border wall. "We'd offer them $1 of CSR payments for $1 of wall payments. Right now that's the offer that we've given to our Democratic colleagues," Mulvaney said during a Bloomberg Live interview, referring to the insurance company reimbursements known as cost-sharing reduction (CSR).
