White House's Proposed Budget Would Bump Deficit To Nearly $1 Trillion
The increased deficit is despite cuts to some government programs.
The White House released its 2019 budget proposal Monday, and it would drastically raise the country's deficit.
The proposal makes a number of cuts to social programs, like Medicaid and Medicare.
Even with those cuts, the Trump administration estimates it'd run into a $984 billion deficit in 2019. And the deficit would remain around $1 trillion for the next few years.
Presidential budgets aren't official; they're suggestions meant for Congress. And Congress normally ignores presidential budget proposals altogether.
