oh no liberals have to pony up for this stuff. now we can see how generous they really are. about fucking time
500,000 retired, and disabled veterans count on that program. Everyone that pays taxes pays for that program. The federal government only pays 1/3 of the cost. About what it will cost for Trump to play golf every weekend in Florida, and his wife to live in New York.

No, as the other posts show, the federal government pays 3% of meals on wheels, and out of that 3% there is one program in there that's going to get the cut, but that entity supplies more than just meals on wheels. Much of it is waste.

Meals on wheels out, billions of money wasted on the military in.

Trump wants to turn us into Sparta, or Imperial Japan 1930.

Then I guess I better use things not familiar to you such as facts, to shield me from your rapier wit.

My GF's father depends on it. He's 99 years old, literally, and lives alone. Without it he's likely to get in his car and drive somewhere, even though he's technically not allowed to.

I'm sure a world where everything isn't just magically handed to you for nothing is beyond Rump's comprehension, since he's never had to sweat anything like that. Never even held a job. Whelp ---- this is the result. Good move, voters.

asswipe.....Meals On Wheels is a problem......too much of the money isn't going to feed the poor.....and why is it you can't crack open your wallet and feed the guy....?

And this is a state problem...not a federal government problem.....if a state has hungry people...they should feed them.....there is more money wasted in each state than you can count...use that money to feed the poor and take care of healthcare...it isn't the Federal Governments job...if people in your state go hungry...that is on you, not Trump....

The Truth about Meals On Wheels and how much money goes to the wrong people....

FAKE NEWS: Did Trump Just Kill Meals On Wheels? Not Even Close.

The Trump administration proposed budget would kill the Community Development Block Grant, a federal boondoggle that’s largely been used for waste and fraud. It costs $3 billion per year. As the budget proposal stated, “The Federal Government has spent over $150 billion on this block grant since its inception in 1974, but the program is not well-targeted to the poorest populations and has not demonstrated results.” Nick Gillespie of Reason explains:

The money often is not going to Meals on Wheels or even to the neediest communities. As a Reason Foundation analysis also from 2013 shows, wealthier communities get the larger chunks of the money, particularly counties that—what a coincidence!—are in proximity to Washington, D.C



….Check out this audit from Riverside County, California, for their CDBG expenditures for 2016, and there's neither a meal nor a wheel to be found.

Of the $761,744 the county received, nearly all of it went to improve a playground and the sidewalks of a single local elementary school.

And note that the reason they were audited by Housing and Urban Development was because they hadn't provided proper documentation of their expenses.


Meals on Wheels does get some money from the CDGB. But the vast majority of its funding comes from elsewhere, and as even the leftists over at Snopes state, “the effect of CDBG cuts on local Meals on Wheels groups is uncertain.” Only 3 percent of the Meals on Wheels budget nationally comes from the federal government at all, and only a portion of that comes from the CDBG.

Walter Olson of the Cato Institute explains that 35 percent of federal funding for Meals on Wheels comes from the Older Americans Act, not the CDBG; no cuts have been contemplated to that program yet.

Yabut drumpf has a much better cause to spend that money on - he weekly golf vacations. So far, he is on track to spend more than 8 tiles what Obama did and take many many times more time off.

According to RWNJs, that's a lot more important than feeding the elderly and handicapped. And, the cheeto plans to raise the cost heating oil so high, they'll freeze to death anyway.

The president’s budget request eliminates federal grants for meals.

President Donald Trump is coming under fire for proposing a budget that includes the complete elimination of federal funding for Meals on Wheels programs.

Meals on Wheels provides food to the elderly, poor, veterans, disabled and others who often can’t leave their homes.

However, under the proposed budget, the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s entire $3 billion Community Development Block Grant program would be eliminated, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

The grants fund services for low-income Americans ― including grants for Meals on Wheels programs.

Wow, no wonder seniors are upset.
Hmm...We could use the billions of dollars for refugee relocation to this country as a means of paying for this. What is essentially a States rights issue can still be accomplished.
We spend $100 Billion a year on illegals, and a considerable sum on Refugees.

We are a nation in debt, who owes our debts to foreign nations.

Exactly how long does lefty think he can keep such a charade going without some day having to cut back and be fiscally accountable?
So, you think cutting this TINY amount will actually make a difference while drumpf and the Rs plan to spend in the billions and billions.

Bet you think cutting PBS will make a difference too, doncha.

RWNJs don't seem to have a clue of how money is involved. Not a clue.

militarytimes: Trump's Proposed Cuts To Meals On Will Hurt Veterans

Trump's proposed cuts to Meals on Wheels would hurt veterans

Shawn Snow, March 16, 2017
They survived the Depression. World War II. Korea. Vietnam. Reagan’s trickle down and even George W. Bush and his “compassionate” cuts to basic services. But will our elderly veterans survive without Meals on Wheels in a Trump budget world? An unthinkable one in six seniors struggles with hunger and Meals on Wheels provides food to 2.4 million seniors, many of whom are able to stay in their homes, rather than more expensive facilities, because of Meals on Wheels. That number includes an astonishing 500,000 veterans who rely on the service.

Is this really who we are as a nation?

<snip>

H-rump - why does Trump want to punish the people who sacrificed/paid their dues/did their part, to make America great and-----and why does Trump want to punish people in the geographic area (South) that gave him the most support in the presidential election... is trump stupid or just an asshole?

Lucky for Trump he inherited enough money that he doesn't have to live on the cheap in the South and was able to buy himself 5 (five) military deferments while we were at... so called war.
