WASHINGTON, DC. (AP/WMOT) -- Tennesseans could see their federal benefits drastically reduced under a budget proposed by President Donald Trump.
Trump's plan cuts almost $3.6 trillion over ten years from an array of benefit programs including Obamacare, TennCare, student loan subsidies and food stamps.
State officials say there are currently just over 1 million Tennesseans receiving food stamps and one-and-a-half million receiving health care through TennCare -- Tennessee’s version of Medicaid.
White House Budget director Mick Mulvaney told reporters at a briefing yesterday. "If you are on food stamps, we need you to go to work.”
