die in the ░░░░░░░░ because too many people ░░░░░░░░ going to die because ░░░░░░░░ don t have health ░░░░░░░░ MOHYELDIN So let me ░░░░░░░░ you about another big ░░░░░░░░ that emerged and that ░░░░░░░░ the Trump Administration releasing ░░░░░░░░ budget proposal I know ░░░░░░░░ tweeted in response to ░░░░░░░░ Quote a president s ░░░░░░░░ typically demonstrates their values ░░░░░░░░ does this budget tell ░░░░░░░░ about this administration or ░░░░░░░░ president s values What ░░░░░░░░ you mean by that ░░░░░░░░ LEVIN Well let s ░░░░░░░░ back to health for ░░░░░░░░ moment Cutting the research ░░░░░░░░ s undertaken by NIH ░░░░░░░░ almost 6 billion By ░░░░░░░░ benefits to the people ░░░░░░░░ to keep their houses ░░░░░░░░ To end for example ░░░░░░░░ great Lakes restoration initiative ░░░░░░░░ matters so much These ░░░░░░░░ values of the president ░░░░░░░░ are not America s ░░░░░░░░ And so this budget ░░░░░░░░ think really even if ░░░░░░░░ Republicans say they won ░░░░░░░░ pass it it shows ░░░░░░░░ this president really believes ░░░░░░░░ And cutting after school ░░░░░░░░ for kids This isn ░░░░░░░░ America MOHYELDIN How would ░░░░░░░░ constituents be affected by ░░░░░░░░ of these funding reallocations ░░░░░░░░ are in this new ░░░░░░░░ LEVIN Well for example ░░░░░░░░ great Lakes restoration initiative ░░░░░░░░ would eliminate it entirely ░░░░░░░░ grants that help communities ░░░░░░░░ local services Our citizens ░░░░░░░░ be vitally affected by ░░░░░░░░ and that s why ░░░░░░░░ budget I say it ░░░░░░░░ the president s values ░░░░░░░░ it isn t American ░░░░░░░░ values Cutting for example ░░░░░░░░ health research by almost ░░░░░░░░ billion American families are ░░░░░░░░ look we have illnesses ░░░░░░░░ want America to stay ░░░░░░░░ the vanguard in terms ░░░░░░░░ research and the president ░░░░░░░░ the United States cuts ░░░░░░░░ by almost 6 billion ░░░░░░░░ does that say to ░░░░░░░░ values at the same ░░░░░░░░ he s providing 600 ░░░░░░░░ in tax cuts in ░░░░░░░░ health bill mostly for ░░░░░░░░ very wealthy Half of ░░░░░░░░ tax cuts go to ░░░░░░░░ who are making over ░░░░░░░░ million a year That ░░░░░░░░ his values It s ░░░░░░░░ America s values MOHYELDIN ░░░░░░░░ right
