Trump’s War on Economic Security: Regulatory and Other Policy Changes That Cut Health and Economic Security Programs

WASHINGTON – During the State of the Union address, Trump claimed that, “poverty was plummeting.” Shawn Fremstad, Senior Policy Fellow at the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) counters, “Since Trump took office, the poverty rate has barely budged and may get worse.”

In The Trump Administration’s Regulatory War on Economic Security, Fremstad has penned a list of these cuts and proposed cuts and what they could mean for people receiving rental housing assistance, SNAP, Medicaid, Medicare, disability benefits, Temporary Assistance, student financial aid, and more.

Congress has rejected nearly all of these cuts. If adopted, these proposals would increase poverty and insecurity, even in the face of the otherwise positive economic headwinds.
