Letter: Cuts are unacceptable

To the Editor:

The recently enacted tax cuts threw the federal budget out of balance. President Donald Trump’s 2019 budget would balance the budget by cutting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. The burden of balancing the budget would fall on those Americans who are least able to pay.

We should make it clear to our legislators in Washington that the proposed cuts are not acceptable.
