Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budgets, rolled out the proposed budget today for Fiscal Year 2018. Today on "The Chris Salcedo Show," Chris Salcedo was impressed by what Mulvaney referred to as a "taxpayer's budget."

The ambitious plan seeks to balance the United States' budget within a decade by slashing $3.6 trillion in spending. Salcedo admitted it was a "high opening bid," acknowledging that it is unlikely Congress will approve all the spending cuts.

Mulvaney emphasized that entitlement programs will remain for the truly needy, but Chris hoped that the prior expansion of many of these programs, because the "standards were lowered" to qualify for them, will be rolled back.
