Donald Trump wants to cut 7 billion dollars from the government program that feeds poor children, CHIP. This comes after welfare reform, and if Repulicans aren't stopped in November medicaid, medicare and social security will be decimated as well in an all out assault on poor people. It will be interesting to see if the ret of the GOP supports this evil plan.

The request from President Donald Trump includes a $7 billion cut to the popular program, part of $15 billion in overall cuts. Some $2 billion would come from a contingency fund that was created to prevent states from running out of money, with the rest coming from funding that Congress has authorized for the program but states haven't spent. The administration defended the cuts, telling reporters Monday the money would come from untapped leftover funds and wouldn't affect operations at CHIP or in other health care areas.


So there was unused money in "untapped leftover funds". I smell the rat here, like that official said, this money was never going to be spent (on children). It really is highly suspicious to me when I read such a thing.

Those "leftover"-breadcrumbs, I bet there was someone or a group who preyed on them to pocket it. Such things have been done in the past, it will happen again.

You don’t solve money problems with money.

The root of the problem is always something deeper with roots in attitude and an aversion to personal responsibility. The mere fact you describe them as ‘poor people’ is part of the problem

Once someone accepts that label for themselves they will be doomed to create that reality for themselves.

I am sure you are well intentioned, but there are more ways to help people than simply throwing money at them.

In many ways you create dependence and steal someone’s ability to take care of themselves when you enable them to remain on assistance.

Most humans will simply feed at the trough if given that option much like an animal to its feed dish.

Your ideas are more harmful to the human spirit than helpful.

So, in effect, this will do nothing to impact the program, but will reclaim unused money? Looks like we are finding waste, stopping it, and having it to reinvest in infrastructure, the opiod crisis, maybe a wall, etc....what is wrong with that?

MAGA

Oh look, the OP is once again regurgitating CNN then bailing on the thread once it's shown to be partisan hackery.

Standard.

Is he on record as saying "Today, our administration is going to decimate this Children's Health Insurance Program. Too long have these young, sick people been weighing down this great country. With their constant begging, whining, and outright attack on American values, they have put all the great and wonderful, hardworking, blue collar, white Americans in a financial bind, that has destroyed the social security administration, and taken jobs out from underneath them. Information from my security council has led us to believe that many of the so-called pediatric cancer patients are working directly with Russian ISIS agents in Iran. As of this moment, I've ordered Secretary of Defense Mattis to strike children's hospitals across the country with our military might. Our brave men and women, who sacrifice everything to protect this country, are unified in this attack against American values. We will ensure that these children suffer, and send a message to all the children of the world that there is no health insurance program in the United States of America for you here! In an attempt to repay these lost funds, I've implemented tariffs on all toys, children's medications, children's clothing, diapers, baby food and baby wipes. We will take back what they've taken from us, and we will distribute those lost funds to the wealthy, white Americans who make this country great. For too long, the democrats have spoiled these kids with healthcare, insurance programs, and fake opportunities at life. Today, we end the tyranny and corruption, and put America 1st! God Bless you all, and God Bless America!!"

I'm pretty sure that's what he said about this. Right?

You know, there ARE other news outlets out there besides CNN, right?

No, not FOX, but other ones.

Try it sometime, you might be surprised how mad you'll get at yourself for willingly believing in CNN's lies and venom.

CNN once again proves it truly is FAKE NEWS!!

This is a dupe of a mid 2017 fake news thread.

If the money is so needed why wasn't it spent?

To add to alternatives.

There are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market that are just as tasty as the real thing. -Chris Knight

In some states, it’s really easy to get in CHIP. Companies like it, since they don’t have to spend money on their employees kids.

Making CHiP a little harder to go on, really won’t hurt poor kids but will hurt big companies trying to save some money.....it would be interesting to see how many CNN employees have their kids on CHiP, instead of CNN taking money from their profits tocpay for Employees family health care

Simple...because the crooked politicians hadn't figured out a way to steal it yet by siphoning it off to their buddies (who would pay them back tenfold in other ways)!

This thread should be moved to the HOAX bin. Its about time the left and right should be held accountable on this site.

CNN told me trump hate children so it must be true. I'm sure those funds are going to Russian children or used to pay off stormy Daniel's.

Trump and the Republicans want to kill children and old people! and gays!

This is why the Democrats are losing members, and the media is viewed as a partisan joke.

Trump obviously wants to use this money to grind up poor children to feed rich kids.

I don't think the plan goes far enough.

There is nothing in the plan that calls for stabbing tiny kittens with forks.
