The White House on Monday proposed capping out-of-pocket prescription drug expenses for seniors covered by Medicare, re-emphasizing Trump administration support for a concept endorsed both by pharmaceutical companies and congressional Democrats.
"I would actually push back on that assessment", Thompson said when asked about what a moderator called "Trump's expressed disinterest in extending New START".
The budget calls for new work requirements for federally funded welfare programs, including Medicaid.
To avoid another government shutdown, Congress will have to pass the 2020 budget by October 1, when the 2020 fiscal year starts. However, Russ Vought warned Congress last month that the administration would be willing to shoot the hostage of defense spending and allow the budget caps to relapse for everything, while seeking the extra military spending from what is known as "Overseas Contingency Operations" (OCO) accounts, which are not subject to the spending caps. Otherwise, it will just result in the same capitulation we saw in February 2018, when Trump agreed to bust the budget caps for two years, even with Republicans in control of the House.
The top Democrat on the Appropriation Committee, Sen. Still, it's hard to see this budget proposal as a serious effort at curing Washington's fiscal problems.
Still, according to Trump's budget, the spending cuts would do little to reduce what is shaping up to be a colossal deficit in the next several years.
The budget deficit has already climbed 77 percent in the first four months of the current fiscal year through September, according to Treasury Department data. Military spending would increase from $715 billion this year to $750 billion.

The budget request would cut Education Department funding by 10 percent while expanding money for school choice, school safety and apprenticeship programs.
Almost $300 million would go toward Education Innovation and Research (EIR) grants, with new funds going toward professional development stipends that could be used by teachers who qualify. The one-time allocation is championed by the president's daughter Ivanka Trump.
Speaking on "Fox News Sunday", Larry Kudlow, the White House's chief economic adviser, acknowledged the request and said the "whole issue of the wall, of border security, is of paramount importance". Others have predicted lower growth.
The president's budget proposal looks to hire almost 3,000 law enforcement personnel for the agencies involved in border security. Key opposition Democratic lawmakers immediately vowed to block wall funding.
In a joint statement, Ms Pelosi and Mr Schumer charged that Mr Trump "hurt millions of Americans and caused widespread chaos when he recklessly shut down the government to try to get his expensive and ineffective wall".
The White House on Monday unveiled a $4.7 trillion government spending plan for 2020, a request that includes President Donald Trump's call for another $8.6 billion for his signature project, construction of a wall on the U.S.
Along with border wall money, the proposed budget will also increase funding to increase the "manpower" of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers and Customs and Border Patrol at a time when many Democrats are calling for cuts of those areas. 'The Budget requests the resources necessary to continue constructing physical barriers on the border, increases the manpower of ICE and CBP, and proposes policy changes to end sanctuary cities'.
The budget arrives as the Senate readies to vote this week to terminate Trump's national emergency declaration.
That would provide a majority for overturning the declaration, and Mr Trump would then be expected to veto the bill, his first use of presidential veto power.
The request, which is to be unveiled Monday, would far exceed the 5.7 billion US dollars Trump demanded a year ago, which led to an impasse that resulted in a 35-day partial shutdown of the USA government, the longest ever.
The wall with Mexico punctuated Trump's campaign for the White House, and it's expected to again be featured in his 2020 re-election effort. He also said that Mexico would pay for it, though the Mexican government repeatedly has refused to finance the project.
In a separate letter, Trump also informed the Congress of his intent to terminate the GSP beneficiary designation of Turkey. This includes data localization, tariffs that India charges US imports and new e-commerce rules.
