Steve Bell Speaks About The Winners And Losers Of The New Federal Budget

Steve Bell joined the panel to talk about the winners and losers of the new federal budget. “The winners are conservatives,” Bell remarked. He noted that there is a huge increase in the budgets for defense and Homeland Security, which are clearly essential to the country’s security. “We don’t need a tax increase,” Bell stated. “We need to invest in that.”

What about the losers? Bell mentioned that this budget for child health insurance funding may make it very difficult for states to implement the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Bell added that the budget does not reflect the will of Americans in general and that the Democrats are running on the basis of not raising taxes. Bell did acknowledge that the federal budget offers more money to seniors in the form of a Social Security “fix.”

The panel also focused on the fact that this budget doesn’t go far enough to balance out its deficits. Margaret Hoover remarked that most Americans want to see more government spending, as her Congressional voter survey found that “government spending was viewed as the key to reducing unemployment.”
