Veterans: Our troops and their families can't eat a parade.

They'll blow $30m to make Trump feel like some Banana Republic strongman.

But they just said, in their budget, we have to cut food assistance (SNAP) for over 23,000 service members.

Our troops and their families can't eat a parade.





Washington (CNN)Budget director Mick Mulvaney said Wednesday that he has seen estimates that a potential military parade requested by President Donald Trump could cost between $10 million and $30 million.

Mulvaney told a congressional hearing that a parade is not included in the administration's budget proposal because it came up late in the planning process. But if the administration decides to go forward with a parade, the Office of Management and Budget would study the costs.

How President's Food Stamp Cuts Would Impact Military Families


A federal funding proposal issued by the White House this week would cut the amount of food aid given to most recipients, including many military families, and replace it with a subscription-style box of delivered foods.

The proposal, announced Monday, would slash the food stamp program, known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), by $17 billion in 2019.
