Thank you, Dean Baker

I read this New York Times article last night and nearly had an aneurysm suppressing my rage. In part for seeing them include Social Security in the general budget and in part just for the general tone of obvious disappointment that Trump's budget didn't include cuts to Social Security and Medicare (e.g. "dogged", "hoped that reality.. would have led to new conclusions"). And that's just what i saw without trying to verify anything. But i calmed myself by saying don't worry, Dean Baker will get this in the morning. And, indeed.

(To be clear, i'm 100% against Trump's insane proposals for increased military spending and cuts to other domestic programs. But an article that subtly attacks Trump for not cutting out most important universal programs is just wrong.)
