CNN = Very, Very Fake News
If I'm reading this right "Meals on Wheels" is STATE funded.
It's also federally funded by a block grant. Some will say it's only 3%. Three percent is 3 billion. ..what state department has that type of money to spare. Also, just because you don't like it or agree doesn't make it fake news. Be blessed.
How else will I eat?" A 68-year-old woman, who hasn't left her home in 7 years, speaks out against President Donald J. Trump's 2018 budget that could slash some funding for "Meal on Wheels," a program that provides meals for older, impoverished Americans. #TheMessyTruth 9pm ET http://cnn.it/2mOzVoL
It seems that the “Chicken Little Effect” is upon us… Meals on Wheels is shutting their doors... (the program will endure) What will happen though is States are going to have to pony up and evaluate their own programs efficiencies and do the right thing and make it work. It has never been the intent to have the federal government be the main benefactor for all of the touchy feely social programs not including the last administration of course… Please don’t get me wrong, I am not saying we need to turn our backs on our legal citizen’s needs. I do know that the extent of social programs that are in existence has had the opposite intended effect. Instead of it being a hand up it has now evolved into a way of life and perpetuates generation after generation.
Any program that is being subsidized by the federal government should reasonably expect to be able to demonstrate that their program is meeting or exceeding the intended end state. Conversely if it is not then that agency must be able to provide a course of action that addresses its shortfalls and lays out the way ahead.
PN, it seems you have the “Media Effect” Cherry pick a “bombshell”, only read the first couple of lines and begin the “Sky is Falling” chant. Something has to give with the fraud waste and abuse of John “Q” Taxpayers money and that means everything is on the table to be revaluated for efficiencies and redundancy
Its amazing how this poor lady is speaking out against Trump while the policies of the previous President has left her behind at home and now dependent on government.
what about the future of our children and grand children if the country continues to live above its means. I'm sure there is a free market or charity solution for her instead of the demonization of conservative budgeting that is good for the "Country"
Like Spock said Leonard Nimoy in Star Trek II "The Wrath of Khan", "The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few or the one" This is logical, conservative and relevant and he even sacrificed his life to save the Enterprise resulting in saving 400 lives.
So no, just because one person has complained about no more meals from the program is not just Trumps fault, we have to examine the policies of the previous inhabitant and what the individual has done for themselves for the past 7 years too.
The point is when it was federally funded. Obama pulled 37.8 million dollars from it. Where was your outrage Then? If that didn't bother you then. But are bothered now. I will look for your picture next to the word hypocrite.
