ANTI-POVERTY GROUP: TRUMP $$$ CUTS REFLECT "DEEPLY MISGUIDED" PRIORITIES

Spending cuts featured in President Trump's $4.4 trillion federal budget proposal would increase homelessness, drive up rents, and "eviscerate" the program that helps low-income families afford food, according to a local anti-poverty law and policy center.

Alleging the Trump administration's values and priorities are "deeply misguided," the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute ticked off programs that would be curtailed -- $213 billion in cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, $300 billion in Medicaid cuts, $266 billion in Medicare cuts, $6.3 billion in cuts to housing programs, and $60 billion in cuts to disability programs, along with the elimination of the largest funder of civil legal aid programs for low-income people, the Legal Services Corporation. About $290 million in housing funding cuts for Massachusetts are possible, the group said.
