The dispute resulted in a 35-day government work stoppage in December and January.

"President 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, which he promised would be paid for by Mexico", the joint statement said.

"Instead of building a stronger, healthier nation, President Trump's budget would take away Americans' health care and devastate the pillars of economic security for seniors and families".

Trump on Monday unveiled his record $4.7 trillion federal budget for the fiscal year that begins on October 1. The administration is counting on robust growth, including from the Republican tax cuts - which Trump wants to make permanent - to push down the red ink. Some economists say the economic bump from the tax cuts is waning, and they project slower growth in coming years. The deficit ran to $900 billion in 2019 and the national debt has ballooned to $22 trillion. The 2020 budget proposal would slash ED's budget by 10 percent at the program level or $8.5 billion, down to $62 billion.

Some fiscal watchdogs, though, panned the effort as more piling on of debt by Trump with no course correction in sight.

The Education Department, however, is asking for a $60 million increase - up to $500 million - to support the expansion of charter schools, $50 million toward states' efforts to create weighted or student-centered funding formulas, and an increase from 3% to 5% for Direct Student Services set aside under Title I. One goal of this increase, Blew said, is to help students - particularly in rural areas - access higher-level courses like Advancement Placement classes that are not available in their local districts. The proposal would shift $1.2 trillion in Medicaid spending over 10 years to block grants starting in 2021, and eliminate funding for Medicaid expansion to states under Obamacare.

The budget also includes additional funding for fighting the opioid epidemic.

Massachusetts Democrats criticized the president's call for a 9 percent cut to programs that support nutrition assistance, pre-school grants and job training; billions of dollars in reductions to Medicare and Medicaid spending and proposed repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

Trump is returning to old battles while refraining from unveiling many new initiatives. "Congress refused to fund his wall and he was forced to admit defeat and reopen the government".
