Opinion:

Great piece by Matt Walsh on the budget and “Meals on Wheels”. BTW, meels on wheels isn’t actually being defunded nor is Sesame Street. Watching the news myself last night saw a lot of people stepping up donating and volunteering for meals on wheels. They said they were experiencing record number donations and volunteering. I thought, that’s good. Isn’t that what America is all about? In this self serving, selfish culture we’re living in right now it seems this would be a nice change.

“Trump did not end Meals on Wheels. He didn’t do anything close to ending Meals on Wheels. His budget doesn’t mention Meals on Wheels. Instead, his budget cuts a program called the Community Development Block Grant. This program, which is often abused, partially funds Meals on Wheels. But the funds it gets from the CDBG are small in comparison to the funds it gets from sources like the Older Americans Act, which remains unscathed by Trump’s budget. Meals on Wheels also subsists largely on private donations. So, it’s not close to accurate to say that Meals on Wheels is “ended.” It’s not even accurate to say that government funding of Meals on Wheels is ended. Rather, one single source of government funding to the program is ended, while may other sources, including private ones, will continue.”
