The White House budget proposals released Thursday would increase spending on social services by nearly $1.5 billion.
That’s about $500 million more than the $500 billion in proposed cuts that the Trump White House is proposing.
The proposals are part of a larger effort to trim spending in the Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies, and a number of them would also raise taxes on households earning more than $200,000 a year.
Trump also proposes a $1 billion cut in the National Institutes of Health.
These cuts would be paid for by reducing programs like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency, and by repealing provisions that make it easier for insurance companies to deny coverage to people with preexisting conditions.
