Someone will set up a donation fund for MOW to mock Trump and end up proving his point.

Plenty of people on the Left are beside themselves over Trump’s proposed budget, which would cut federal funding to, among other things, Meals on Wheels. The national Meals on Wheels program, for the record, receives only about three percent of its total annual funding from the government. So, if you exercise logic, you might ultimately conclude that Meals on Wheels would continue to exist and do its work without the federal government’s help.
And you’d evidently be right:

Well, fancy that!
@CNN B-b-but I had hand wringing people wailing in my TL all day yesterday that elderly people & small children were gonna DIE from this cut?!

Why, that doesn’t seem to be the case at all. Who’d’a thunk?!
Oh they can do that without the government? Weird. https://t.co/Se0hGbXs6M

@CNN It's almost like it can survive without 3% funding from the fed. Who could have guessed. ?

@CNN getting donations so that they don't need federal funding. looks good to me.

It is almost as if that is the better way to do this. https://t.co/1KCl7Y7s24

Good. That's exactly how it should be. https://t.co/kwwRYxPDPX

@CNN good … that's how it's supposed to work.

Great. This is the way charities are supposed to work.
Individuals decide where their time/$$ should be spent … not Govt.

@CNN that's the way it should be citizens taking care of each other. Since when did government become the means to charity!!
— Elliot Figueroa (@ElliotFigueroa) March 17, 2017
@CNN This is how it should work. Unforced, charitable giving.
— HingleMcCringleberry (@JeffreyMaxxx) March 17, 2017
@CNN Exactly! This is how it should be. Let Americans step up to the plate! Giving is good for the soul. Get govt out of the equation.

That's how this is supposed to work. And imagine what good people can do if their taxes are cut and they have even more money to give. https://t.co/mqWxjgesfo
