Is there a down side to these budget cuts?
Yes, go on the offensive.
Defund ethanol laws and regulations; food stamps; and welfare, especially for non-citizens.
Can NPR. Then we’ll know they’re serious.
So it's not like they're slashing anything. They are taking the mone from one pocket and putting it in another, but at the end of the day they still spend the same. These morons are beyond belief.
Dems propose spending increases, sending deficit to records level.
AP headlines you'll never see.
The worst part is that a lot of low information voters will be against this “slashing” (as the hysterics at the AP call it) of the National Endowment for the Arts budget, as if we have the money to pay anything to the National Endowment for the Arts. Americans just flat out don’t understand — or don’t want to understand — that we can’t afford any of this. We are putting the cost of this NEA sh___tty, B-rate art on a credit card that our children and grandchildren will have to pay for. Perhaps when they get mad enough to p__ss on or graves for the debt mountain the current generation caused, some future NEA will call it performance art and give them a grant to do it.
It’s a pity they won’t stand by this. They’re just trying to decide where to fold like a cheap suit.
Gut the EPA, the Dept. of Energy, and the Dept. of Education, for starters.
What passes for “the arts” these days is about 90% garbage that could never make it as commercial ventures. If “we” don’t want it, why should “we” pay for it?
Why not cut massive amounts from the IRS, the Justice Department and anything funding Obamacare?
They slash it now, but it will be put.back in during the argument for some other spending bill. How about these wimps really cut some spending, like defund the kennedy/bush medicare atrocity, or foodstamps for illegals? They wont do any substantial cuts at all. This I nothing more than political theater.
I’m waiting for a return of federal land takings to the states act. Seriously, there is absolutely NO, ZERO legitimate reason for the federal government to have taken:
New Mexico 41.8%
Stand by for the inevitable stories of environmental rapine and starving artists ... well ... starving.
better to abolish than cut the rate of growth. I guess they are making room for handouts to LaRaza and LULAC
