Interesting but still now things are changing and as the research paper writing service expert reports we didn't want to destroy the programs that help the rural poor in places like Appalachia - we didn't vote for Trump. Appalachia and other rural areas did vote for him, and as such I've got to think that they wanted these cuts to the social safety net that is now going to impact them. What's the saying? "Elections have consequences"? Well, if those who voted for Trump had spent half a minute thinking through the implications of what Trump was proposing, instead of wallowing in the trumpoganda about how all their problems were because of the "coastal elites" and the scary brown people and "make America great again!", maybe they wouldn't have fallen for the con job and we'd have a President who wasn't intent on giving huge tax cuts to the wealthy at the expense of those struggling just to keep their heads above water. But their ill-considered vote is going to damage the health and welfare of a lot of this nation's citizens, so it's only fair that they suffer along with the rest of us.
