White House planning cuts to Social Security Disability

Sadly, this is not "fakenews". It comes from the Trump Administration's Office of Management and Budget's director, Mick Mulvaney.

1. "The budget will call for a $72 billion cut over 10 years to the Social Security Disability Insurance. Mulvaney said this would inspire more people to get off disability and back to work."

2. "According to Bloomberg, the cuts to the food-stamp program in the budget would amount to $193 billion."

3. "The budget proposes an additional $610 billion cut to Medicaid, with $250 billion in savings to offset it. Based on Mulvaney's comments, it appears this is in addition to the $880 billion already cut (from medicaid) under the House's American Health Care Act healthcare bill.
