Top Republicans chagrined over proposed cuts that hit home
In the weeks after the Trump administration sent its skinny budget to Congress, bipartisan angst over the depth of proposed cuts swept across the Capitol. A number of programs also favored by Republicans would suffer under the Trump budget. "I think you have an administration that has a petty aggressive goal, and they've put down some pretty hard-hitting cuts," said Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska). "And I think our job now is to step up and make sure that these programs that are so important have that support that they need."
