The free market is more efficient and more responsive to the needs of the downtrodden than the government could hope to be and after President Trump’s proposed budget eliminated taxpayer funding for a few programs, the private sector quickly proved that a well-thought move.

Meals on Wheels America, the umbrella organization for 5,000 providers of home-delivered meals for seniors, said on Saturday that online donations have surged since the White House released a proposed budget that could lead to a big drop in its funding. The organization, which provides advocacy services for the national network, received about $50,000 on Thursday after the budget blueprint was announced, compared with $1,000 on a typical day.

A growth of 50x in charitable giving is nothing to laugh at and was done with little outreach. Surely, groups like Meals on Wheels will have to learn how to milk money from the pockets of Silicon Valley billionaires, Hollywood celebrities, Financial elite and rich politicos like the Clintons. While liberals decry the budget as cruel, the recent news shows that programs don’t have to rely on the forced donations of taxpayers. Voluntary giving – formerly known as charity – can supplant the money that the government can no longer afford. Tucker Carlson made a similar case on Friday when he debated the need for taxpayer-funded charities with an NEA advocate. CDN –
