Letter to Editor in Monterey Herald, November 22, 2017 and San Francisco Chronicle, Nov. 27, 2017

A lesson on American priorities in the age of Trump: The 2018 budget proposals call for cuts in Medicaid, Medicare, welfare, food stamps, children’s health insurance, Social Security Disability Insurance, health care, student loan programs, education … well, you get the picture. On the other hand, a 30-year makeover of the American nuclear arsenal will cost taxpayers $1.2 trillion ($1.7 trillion with inflation). Any questions?
