McConnell criticizes Trump spending cuts
The GOP never cuts spending
The Republican Party is little more than a
pro-gun faction of the Democrat Party
(The Hill) - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday criticized President Trump's proposed cuts to the State Department budget, calling them inappropriate.

"There are things on the domestic side that are extremely important," he added.
McConnell maintained that he will fend off attempts to cut funding for the Appalachian Regional Commission, which sponsors economic development initiatives in Kentucky, and shield the National Institutes of Health, according to the AP.
"When we get to funding the government, obviously it will be done on a bipartisan basis," he said last month . . .
