This week we got a peak into the Trump administration released its budget proposal for next year. The budget provided a peek into the administration’s sadistic machinations, including massive cuts to domestic programs and raft of proposals aimed at screwing over Federal workers, all while pumping up the military budget on the basis of fantastical economic projections. This budget has little chance of passing, however the administration has none-the-less continued to screw up the country’s finances, as impasses in congress caused the government to pass the debt ceiling earlier this month.

As always, I don’t expect to catch everything, so let me know if there’s anything you think I’ve missed. The full omnibus is being maintained here (a spreadsheet version can be found here). For an overall summary, click here.
