It's the precedent!
Yall don't listen... the 3.3% of the meals on wheels funding is not gonna close the program...
THEN THE PRESIDENT TAKE LESS, SENATE, AND HOUSE THEY HEALTHCARE I BET THEY DON'T PAY FOR IT! WE DON'T HEAR ABOUT IT! BUT THE PEOPLE WORKING HARD FOR MONEY AND LOW WAGES HAVE TO PAY MORGAGES, LIGHTS, HEAT AND INSURANCES!! WHILE PRESIDENTS GET HOUSING, MEALS. HEAT AND ELECTRICY PAID FOR THEM, THE SAME FOR GOVERNORS!! I THINK THAT GOVERNORS SHOULD GET A WAGE AND PAY THEIR OWN HOUSING, FOOD ETC.
Why do you not talk about the cost of war? Jed you should be outraged about the wars before you cry out what about the deficit, the vulnerable should be taken care of by the richest country in the world. Wars kill and create enemies, we don't have to be at war forever. When was the last time we were not in the killing business. Our best are being maimed for what? So those that get richer keep getting richer? Are we winning?
I love how when Sara talks, Jed is completely quiet :3 Sara has a real to-ground opinion that they and even Jed respects to the point where she isn't rudely interrupted
This cow makes all this money on the View and makes her Grandma depend on Meals On Wheels?
so what do think poor people will do when they cant buy food...smh
Raise taxes on the rich, create jobs programs to get more people working, and slash military spending.
Compare Thatcher in UK in the 80´s and Donald Trump in the US 2017 ? Really .. he should protect the poor , older and the young .. not his golf friends that are rich..
21 trillion in debt and they're arguing while the ship is sinking.
Do people not understand history? google: New Deal
Mulvaine, or whatever the his name is, resembles a money grubbing leprechaun who wants to ruin this country. He is one of many put in office (hand picked by Trump and Pence) to turn this world upside down. Let's cut his salary and his healthcare and withhold any extra take home pay he may want through is backroom deals. This monstrosity he put together will be the end of the middle class and throw them right with the poor.
Maybe he's Irish 🍀?
If Trump is as rich as he says he is then why can't he pay for his golf trip?
paula faris and everyone blaming the budget deficit and all this stuff on programs like MEALS ON WHEELS is INSANE.
Why can't the parents feed their kids at home with the food they are provided?? My parents received nothing and my brother and I never went to school hungry
Sunny Hostin's mother is on meals on wheels, yet Sunny's net worth is around 2 million dollars.. So she expects other people to take care of her mother, but her 2 million dollars cant? Hypocrite.
We're in debt but were increasing military funds by billions? lol. Screw the poor im buying nukes 😂😂😂 America your so Smart 😉
Why is Sarah Haines still on the View?
get rid of tax havens and make these assholes pay or were coming for them
The Republican Party is a JOKE! Nothing they stand for is helping anyone besides rich corporations and rich people. Jed makes no sense, TAX THE EXTREMELY RICH PEOPLE HIGHER. We've seen this before you keep cutting taxes for the rich and it gets shifted to other people, the middle class and poor people. He's already stated by increasing taxes on first time home buyers. You don't have to cut these programs if you tax richer people. A lot of them aren't paying their fair share, they never have. They evade their taxes, they go through loop holes and everyone knows it. You aren't going to reduce the debt by cutting programs that help people to increase the military budget and pay for ridiculous things like a wall.
The people who go out & fight for our lives everyday should have an increase in thier budget.
"Many trump supporters need to read the New York Times" these people are 100% delusional, they live in a bubble that is not based in reality.
Just Because you have a male body and a duck doesn't mean your a man and by the way Thnxs but the chick us defiantly Retarded
Lets all be more compassionate to the millionaires out there that are doing it tough.
Cut programs to help ppl US CITIZENS but yet spend money on F35 jets that were supposed to be intergrated into the military over 5 years ago but they are to expensive to maintain so we use 1970 fighter jets that are cheap to build and maintain and have been more useful and in service longer then any other jet but we cant just spend the money we have on those we HAVE TO GET THE LATEST AND GREATEST JETS that give use no advantage to 1970s technology >.> but sure lets not put the ppl of america first just the ppl who evade taxes and have finacial lawyers to help lower the amount they have to pay to the government I mean cant the coal miner just hire and wall street lawyer to evade taxes oh thats right they cant
HE IS SLASHING / DISMANTLING THE EPA... CLEAN AIR WATER SAFE FOOD SAY GOODBYE... ANIMAL CRUELTY LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS VANISHED FROM WHITE HOUSE WEBSITE. JED TALKS ABOUT BALANCING BUDGET...HE IS MASSIVELY INCREASING MILITARY SPENDING!!!!!! DESPITE U.S. MILITARY BEING SOMETHING LIKE 15 times LARGER THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY. HE IS TRADING PBS...EPA...MEALS ON WHEELS...STATE DEPARTMENT DIPLOMACY..SCIENCE RESEARCH...MEDICAID...ANIMAL CRUELTY LAW ENFORCE...ETC ETC ETC ETC IN ORDER TO MASSIVELY MASSIVELY INCREASE MILITARY SPENDING. YOU ROYAL IDIOT JED. THANKS A LOT YOU VILE IRRESPONSIBLE MORON FOR CONTINUING TO MISLEAD AND MISGUIDE VIEWERS. WHEN WILL THEY CUT THE CORD ON THIS RABID PERPETRATOR AND PROMOTER OF TRUMP AND GOP LIES????? I CANNOT WATCH THIS SHOW ANYMORE...THAT'S IT...BYE VIEW. GIVING A MICROPHONE EVERYDAY TO SOMEONE WHO FEROCIOUSLY (AND SLYLY) DEFENDS AND SUPPORTS LIES AND MISGUIDES PEOPLE IS TERRIBLY IRRESPONSIBLE.
Wanna save money? Stop bombing Afghanistan and Yemen, stop supporting Israel and stop with the drones in Pakistan.
No, billionaires are not paying 50%, they are paying around 20%. A lot of them say they would be comfortable paying around 40%.
Donald Trump decided not to take a salary so I think that saves a lot of money.
I'm pretty positive he doesn't need your money for a personal trip. These aren't issues you need to think about... people seem to forget that he was rich two months ago.
America is not broke I am tired of republican saying this this is nothing more then A method for corporations to ask government to lower the corporate taxes repatriation is a lie today corporations pay 0% tax operating out of Bermuda the Cayman Islands in multiple tax havens America is not broke
who still listens to those idiotic morons????!!!!!! ... how have I ended up here?????????? ... I remember, TOMI ...
Those agencies that he cut make up the smallest amount of the regular budget. So really he is not gaining much by cutting them.
The way I see it is when democratizes are in the white house (president wise) they build the country and when the Republicans are in the white house they destroy the country.
We will know when the government becomes serious about paying off the national debt as our bills will have red seals on them instead of green. If you don't know the difference between the two, the meaning of the red stamped bills is where you should start your research.
The cost for 6,000 elderly American citizens to receive Meals on Wheels, FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR, has ALREADY been spent (with the hard earned dollars of We The Taxpayers)...on Trump's Mar A Lago trips as of YESTERDAY! That doesn't include the costs for Melania and Baron remaining in their NYC Penthouse, or the security team covering ALL OF Trump Tower, OR the BUSINESS trips that his kids are taking...ON HIS BEHALF! This isn't unusual...but that doesn't excuse it. This wasn't acceptable BEFORE there was a candidate who was OBVIOUSLY SCAMMING the taxpayers IN EVERY POSSIBLE WAY...and it's NOT ACCEPTABLE now!
We The People have failed to look out for our fellow Americans enough for the last 30 yrs because we assumed that OUR REPRESENTATIVES would do so on OUR behalf. In reality, they only did so until we weren't paying attention. Now that we're paying attention again, it likely may take the next 30 yrs for We The People to successfully look out for our fellow Americans. To demand that OUR REPRESENTATIVES follow the principles and ideals that will transform OUR COUNTRY into the nation that WE WANT FOR OUR FELLOW AMERICANS.
Quoting Thatcher as an economic rationale is nonsense, Jedediah. Thatcher's neoliberalism ruined the UK economy and society. Economically Thatcher's regime broke unions, punished the middle class & began the two tier economy that has resulted in the mess they're in today. Thatcher rejected refugees, supported Pinochet's regime, supported South African apartheid, imprisoned Irish citizens under draconian terrorism laws that did not affect actual terrorists. To say nothing of the fact she enabled & covered up for paedophiles in her own Cabinet, even hosting Jimmy Savile at Checkers 11 times. Ask the people of the Falklands and Argentina what a hero and economist Thatcher is. To add insult for injury, Thatcher and her children have tax dodges in the Cayman Islands but the impoverished taxpayers of the UK were forced to pay for a State Funeral for someone who did nothing but damage to the entire fabric of UK society. To quote Thatcher on Paddy's Day in any context other than a deluded traitor to her class, gender & nation is especially offensive.
Sunny and Jed crack me up...I don't believe AT ALL that rich people pay 50% of their income in taxes. Donald Trump went on national tv and said he didn't pay taxes, I seriously doubt he's the only one
I love this show for their openness and having their own opinions. It is refreshing to see outlets like this talk about important topics but are still able to give their two cents in. I find myself constantly disagreeing with Jed, unfortunately, and agreeing with Whoopi, Sunny, Joy and Sara..... but man, Jed really sometimes gets under my skin.
Why everyone needs to eat at school? Adjust the program to just to provide those who are in real need. Michelle/Michael Obama program was proof to be a disaster and money is not well spent.
lol, suck it up, you have to be the dumbest group of women in history!!! #Draintheswamp!!
why talk about fake news and incorrect facts.....
I love Sunny BUT she hates anecdotal evidence when it comes to the Affordable Care Act yet uses it here for Meals on Wheels... I find it ludicrous.
they already take half of the billionaires income you idiots! Theft!
no respect from you people, ya'll need to look at action/response
35% comes from government, not 3.3%. Not sure where she got that percentage.
hmm, jedidiah, we don't have enough money to help pay for food for the poor kids and the elderly, but we have the money to fund for more weapons and government contractors. (and Trump's trips to his "winter Whitehouse " where he can dine on lobster and caviar) um, ok. You're a special kind of stupid.
Since when do y'all start caring about the budget?
Jed your clueless in you're privilege. It's all good when your love ones aren't affected.
We can't be that broke with all the golf trips he's taking. .
Never heard anyone complain about their taxes going to meals on wheels or after school programs! Real Americans have no problem helping those in need. Trump doesn't care about the American people.
R. Esco I thought the same thing, and knowing that Paula has kids it blew my mind that she would worry more about the debt then a hungry child. As a born again Christian women I expected her answer to be more selfless and understanding.
Someone should shut up this conservatives! They really have nerve to talk!
The country is broke?? THE COUNTRY IS BROKE??? Is that Republicans' excuse??? Tell me how consistent tax cuts to billionaires or billionaires hiding their money in tax havens, HELPING THE MATTER??? It seems like that would make the problem bigger right? I pay more taxes than billionaires, that's insane!!!
I am a single mother in Florida... and YES, YES I AM HAPPY TO USE MY TAX DOLLARS for an elderly person in another state to have a meal. Yes! But I say NO to my tax dollars being used for Trumps weekend trips! This jerk has the audacity to say that I will have choices now. What choice are you giving us????
Cut the defense budget!!! That would plug the hole....
I don't know why I watch these clips anymore. They get me aggravated every time. Episodes after episode, no matter the topic, the majority of the ladies don't listen to reason. In this clip you see Jed and Sarah try to discuss hard facts and statistics yet no one wants to listen. They keep pressing the emotional talking points behind the issues instead of the reality. Is Meals on Wheels important? Yes, no one was arguing that. But the spending that is being cut only makes up 3% of their funding. Trump isn't demolishing the program when 97% of it isn't being touched. Why is 3% a bigger deal than 90 trillion dollars? It's like talking to a brick wall.
I've seen that 3% figure being cited in a few articles though. Either all those articles are wrong or we are missing something. In the video, they mentioned that it was a specific grant that was being cut. That leads me to think that it's not the entire 35% funding that you mentioned above but only one of the grants that the government portions out for programs like this. They also said they were cutting it because it wasn't being appropriated allocated. If that's true and the money wasn't being put to proper use, then I can see why they'd rather stop giving that money away. Especially when we are in the trillions in debt. Every penny counts, as they say.
Unfortunately, Jed gave us grossly misleading information. Meals on Wheels gets *35%* of its funding from (various) federal government sources, NOT 3%. (In which case, I may agree with you that it wasn't a huge deal). I'm sorry that you were taken in by her lie. Here's an official clarification statement, explaining their funding structure. http://www.mealsonwheelsamerica.org/national/press-room/2017/03/16/statement-clarifying-federal-funding-to-meals-on-wheels
The lady complaining that billionaires have to pay nearly half of their earning to taxes. That's so sad, now they be able to buy as much private islands anymore. Meanwhile, a few thousand poor and elderly people may not eat for a week. That's the world we live in. A shame that most of the those old folks voted for Trump
Jed needs to go. Zero compassion for people who truly need help. She only speaks on behalf of the rich and corporations who continue to get the most help on the backs of the middle class and the poor.
Look at the debt, ok again Trumps weekends playing golf and Melania in New York. There is a lot of money there.
America is broke? I find bs in her argument. Yes, we're in a national debt, but this cut comes with a major increase in defence spending. That doesn't save anything. It just moves money around. Want to talk about cutting debt? Why not cut just 10 to 20% from defense. There's our solution, and still gives us PLENTY of resources for defense. We spend nearly 85% of the national budget on that. Insane!
That lady on the far right though with her green buddy.
So if the country is broke...where is he gonna get the billions of dollars for that wall...
Mexico isn't actually. If you do any sort of research, you can easily figure that out.
Kayla White Mexico is paying for it
Joy Behar is the biggest stain on women since God invented the menstrual cycle.
Yeah, Jed. Every president has the perk of maintaining their first lady in manhattan penthouses at taxpayer expense and profiting from it to boot (because secret service pays rent to Trump Tower). Cuts to MOW and education are fine, but god forbid precious Barron suffer the trauma of finishing the school year in DC.
And then they are the ones who will talk about being Christians?......Jedediah and the other person in green? Last I remember the directive, (not suggestion), from Jesus was in his Final Judgment comments. He said he would bring the nations, (all the people of the world), together and place some on his right and some on his left and make the following 6 edicts......... "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you came to me." Those who did not do these things he said............................. “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and you did not take care of me and in prison and you did not visit me".Sounds clear to me where their will be with their attitudes. I know what the next comment will be from them.........."it is not the government's job to take care of people, private companies and individuals will step in".......the same companies which had record profits and hid them in overseas accounts, "building up treasures on earth" as Jesus would call it. Ananias and Sapphira were an husband and wife who during the time directly after Jesus' death had some wealth. Per Jesus' suggestion to the rich man on how to be a better person in the world, "sell all you have and give to the poor then follow me"....the believers did just that. They gave the money to the Apostles to distribute. It was said that poverty ceased t exist because of this. This could tried to keep some of the money after selling their things and lied about it. God struck them both down dead. Sounds like he choose the type of society, government, community he preferred. He did not say that was their money to ignore those less fortunate and it is not the government's role.
I work with Meals on wheels. I guess I would be unemployed soon smh
What about his increase in the defense budget and his WALL?! (that wall is going to add a lot to the debt too and it's pretty much useless, the border patrol has said it's better when they can see THRU so they could see people coming and not just when they get over, what we have now is really really tall, also not to mention I thought Mexico was going to pay, nope, our tax dollars are.)These programs he's cutting are important!! He's using the power of the presidency to fight his racist war and not thinking of the lower class..
I am a liberal but sunny needed to listen to Jeds point about meals on wheels mostly being privately funded so it will be fine being cut from the government spending
Joy Beyer is an IDIOT and an old hag Idiot at that. She is nothing but an EVIL mouth piece. Trump IS OUR PRESIDENT, get over it Loser and stop WHINING.
I hate Jed. She is such a stupid, stupid, vicious, heartless person.
You can't justify these cuts while Congress and the President dismantle America?
Way to use the race card "Single mother in Detroiit " and the GOP mantra "reduce the debt" bith untrue, unless that single mother is making 125-200K she's not paying taxes Fed or state and those tax cuts are going to ballon the debt.
Anthony Jones is every single mother in Detroit a particular race?
Jed is the Jeffrey Lord of The view.
Why do people watch this show if they are going to call Jed and Paula idiots? The show is called the view and them sharing their opinions is part of the show! Both sides have good points
David Hanania maybe because they like the show but not them
You won't hear about this on The View. Headline: Meet the Terrorist Behind the next Women's Rights MarchClick link:nypost.com/2017/02/25/the-next-womens-march-is-co-organized-by-a-terrorist/
They are asking for our hard earned money but not to help the "single mom" but to help the war machines, the rich and the big corporations.
Why does a rich TV lawyer's grandmother need Meals On Wheels? Really Sunny?
+Raja1938 Don't even bother explaining things to deplorables.
She's talking about before she became a rich TV lawyer. She wasn't born with a silver spoon.
the lady in the middle whom suppourts trump, is the only one with sense
Jed, the 2005 Trump tax return revealed a 25% tax payment. Where are you getting a 50% tax burden for millionaires & billionaires? Their federal tax rate is low combined with numerous deductions and business losses to lower it even further. The top dividend tax & the capital gains tax are a joke. Both should be 40% as well as the income tax! State, local, property taxes are separate. Texas billionaires=NO state income tax.
Not enough cuts. Government need to cut more. Not enough millionaires and billionaires to tax to pay all of this stuff.
Jed is such a liar and it's getting annoying!!!
this is funny...baby murderers calling for the protection of the vulnerable.
I totally agree!! She doesn't belong at the VIEW!
Rich people hurting poor people, great :(
jed looks beautiful. That hair though 😍😍
I love the view!!! Its the best group of ladys! Even though I cant stand jed and that paula nut!!!
Ya let's all read the fake news New York Times lol. That's it.
why have they not mention the fact that they are increasing the FUCKING military by 50 billion dollars!!! that's where all the fucking money is going!!
the debt, the debt, we're broke... yet the military can be increased astronomically, and the offset made on the backs and stomachs of the poor and the elderly
This is abominable and people like that narcissist Tomi Lahren spew their craziness! www.thesun.co.uk/news/3118428/donald-trump-ignores-handshake-request-from-angela-merkel-in-front-of-cameras-at-white-house-meeting/
we have a 20T debt. well you have to deal with the deficit first. smh
Trump does not pay taxes, Trumps friends do not pay taxes, Trumps relatives do not pay taxes, Trumps employees pay taxes, Trumps competitors pay taxes.
If you want to raise revenue for the country, get rid of tax exemptions for religious institutions. Make the churches, and the temples and the mosques pay their fair share too. Let's see how truly charitable they are.
The nyt is fake news. No wonder she is clueless. She is also completely out of touch with what the general public want.
tRump is an embarrassment to this country.
Alot of yelling here always, lost as always.
