Abrupt Trump cuts to teen pregnancy program surprise groups
Thinkstock

The Trump administration has abruptly cut short grant programs aimed at ending teen pregnancy, leaving the institutions that receive the funds scrambling for answers.

An office within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notified 81 institutions across the U.S. that the five-year grants they were awarded would end two years sooner than planned.

The Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program (TPPP), a national program created in 2010 under former President Barack Obama, funds organizations working to reduce and prevent teen pregnancy, with a focus on reaching populations with the greatest need.

But HHS informed the recipients in their annual grant award letters that programs would end next year rather than in 2020, a cut of about $200 million over two years.

The TPPP has funded initiatives in 39 states, including one run by the Baltimore City Health Department.

8. I certainly don't have the life experience of some on this board

But I've never seen anything like what Trump is doing. It truly feels like a complete dismantling of every accomplishment of the previous administration, and driven by spite more than logic. There was an article posted yeaterday discussing the international community's leaders and their thoughts on Trump and one made the comment "Trump will ask, in regards to prior agreements, 'Did Obama agree to that?' If the answer is yes, his response is 'Well we no longer agree". I'm paraphrasing, but that was the gist.

4. That's precisely what his directive says. Anything

implemented during the Obama administration must be destroyed!! If you don't make it happen, I'll replace you!!!

7. He's preparing for the massive

...tax cuts for the rich he wants to see in about a year. By cutting programs now he's hoping to get in place enough smoke and mirrors to say that the safety net was not harmed at all.

14. Oh, it's not dump directly

it's the goons from the Heriturd Fuckdation. That hot mic incident a week or so ago when a puke senator and a dem senator (I think) were conversing and the puke said they are just going through the budget and crossing out anything that says "grant", with no understanding of what the program does or what the consequences of axing it would be. She said it was frightening how they were acting with no concern for the budgetary process or functioning of government.

These sick f*cks are just ginning to wreck the Federal Government, the people and their welfare be dammed.

They wanna burn it all down.

Just wait until we come up against the debt ceiling.

They are insane and they are in charge of our nation.
