Kansas senator says Trump pledged not to cut crop insurance. Trump's budget cuts it

TOPEKA -- Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts said President Donald Trump made a commitment to him in the Oval Office last year not to cut crop insurance, a key program for farmers.

Trump’s budget proposal cuts the program anyway.

The president’s budget plan, released Monday, would eliminate subsidies to higher-income farmers and reduce “overly generous” subsidies for others, the White House said.

Under Trump’s budget, the average premium subsidy for crop insurance would fall from 62 percent to 48 percent.

The changes would save more than $2 billion a year beginning in 2020, according to the White House.

1. And everyone else sighed a collective

"Duh."
He's a liar. He will lie to get what he wants. Never had any intention of following through on promises.

So, government subsidies are a good thing? What about the free market? As a right wing hack, you should be advocating for eliminating these subsidies altogether. Of course that won't happen, because the recipients of the subsidies vote for you.

7. Excellent!

This is the kind of thing that might turn a few people in rural Kansas and other red states. He's actually blaming Trump instead of saying that it was something the Democrats did.
