Reporters Shocked as White House Claims Killing Meals on Wheels Is Compassionate

The Trump budget outline unveiled on Thursday morning slashes the entirety of that program’s $3 billion budget, which allocates grants to metropolitan areas with populations exceeding 50,000 people for various community programs. One of those programs is Meals on Wheels, which provides meals to shut-ins, brought to their homes by volunteers. With Meals on Wheels losing its federal grants, the program’s survival is unlikely. Mulvaney said the decision to propose shutting down CDBGs was due to a perceived lack of performance.

A White House correspondent then asked Mulvaney if the White House budget was “hard-hearted.”

“I don’t think so,” Mulvaney said in response to the question. “In fact, I think it is one of the most compassionate things we can do.”

1. The US only funds 3% of the Meals on Wheels budget

97% is privately funded.

in other words, go fish

6. Priorites

He wants to increase national security spending, America first.

If I was gonna go bonkers, I'd go bonkers over the proposed EPA cuts. There you could make the argument he's destroying the agency, projected that 4,000 EPA folks gonna lose their jobs.

5. Also pulled completely out of context

I watched the press conference. What he was saying is it's more compassionate to let someone keep their own money. And you better have a good reason to take it from them.

11. swing and a miss by connie. it was wrong to cut it then, and wrong to cut it now. claiming that

doing something cold and stupid is okay because someone else did the same cold, stupid thing, is a shortcut to actual thinking.

14. Never claimed it was right to do. I actually support M.O.W. as a valuable service

I merely point out the LW hypocrisy

the left reads on Du'h or Kos trump killing seniors with meals on wheels cuts and doesnt bother to ever think for themselves

First, Federal Funding is such a small element of it, and Obama cut it even deeper and no whines and 30 OP's from the LW calling him a murderer like the LW does for trump

16. i know the federal funding is a small part. but i think it was wrong when obama made cuts as well.

I'm not giving anyone pass on that, no matter what party they are in.

10. it was wrong then, and it's wrong now. two wrongs don't make a right. the money spent on this

program is a tiny drop in the bucket compared to military spending.

18. not heaping debt on our children is indeed compassionate.

We can't charge 10 trillion to our national debt like obama did for too long.
