What to expect in Trump’s 2018 budget tomorrow (and what it means to North Carolina)

The White House plans to unveil President Trump’s detailed 2018 budget tomorrow.

Ever since the administration released their 2018 budget blueprint (skinny budget) back in March, we have conducted analysis that shows various ways in which North Carolinians would be harmed under Trump’s proposed budget. In case you missed this analysis, below are links to the recent posts in our ‘Federal Budget Blog Series’ (and also a preview of what’s to come):

Preview of what’s to come…

Trump’s budget is expected to include about $800 billion in cuts over 10 years, largely in programs for lower-income people, including millions of low-wage working individuals and their families. However, interest in Robin-Hood-in-reverse redistribution isn’t limited to the President. House Republican leaders reportedly plan to include $400 billion to $500 billion in cuts to core support programs for struggling families in their own 2018 budget.

Based on the President’s proposal and the potential support for cuts to vital programs from Congress, it is critical that North Carolinians and North Carolina policymakers writing our state budget consider the ways which the federal budget could play out in our communities.  It is clear that across a range of areas North Carolina will be hampered from achieving a stronger economy and thriving communities if the proposed direction in federal budgeting moves forward.
