As they say " a hundred million here, a hundred million there, pretty soon you are talking about some real money".
What a nice way to start the year out right. When thing get tight around the house. We all know what we can cut and not miss it. I don't like the government telling me who I have to give money.
Libs are freakin out! A community orchestra performance, a new work from an emerging playwright, art therapy for a returning veteran, local library classes in Braille, free standardized-test preparation, and Bert and Ernie. Thousands of such programs could be gutted under President Trump’s proposed budget.The budget plan, which calls for the elimination of four independent cultural agencies — the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting — also would radically reshape the nation’s cultural infrastructure.Although all states would suffer under the proposed budget, poor and rural communities would be hardest hit, according to the NASAA. About 25 percent of NEA block-grant funds go to rural communities and 54 percent to low-income areas.“We are gravely concerned about the impact on rural areas, low-income areas, schoolchildren, seniors and veterans,” Barsdate said.
I have already seen a couple of articles about how these cuts will hurt the GOP in the mid-terms. Don't these people understand this is what TEA is about? However, it does show how corrupt the congress critters are.
Poor & Rural communities hardest hit....HOW?I grew up in very rural SW Wisconsin, we could pick up 3-4 NPR stations, all filling the airwaves with the same LIBERAL, NEW AGE, ONE WORLDLY - NPR crap. The cows didn't like it, pigs hated it, horses kick at the stalls - and we considered it a bunch of high-brow-types trying to educate us about the environment we lived in daily - "Educated Idiots" we called them. I still laugh when one of us tells stories of these 'highly educated types' peeing on an electric fence, or trying to outrun a raging Ram or Billy goat... they tried to "bond" with. Sure, "Love conquers all" - unless it has a huge set of horns, equals your weight, and his favorite goat friend hasn't come into heat yet.... Poor Rural folks aren't listening to NPR. RICH Elitist slobs who buy 1 acre among 3 family farms and complain about the smell of 'farmer's money' listen to NPR. (Translation: Pigs, Horses, Cattle, Goats, Sheep, Turkeys, & Chickens all smell the same - that's the smell of MONEY)
Listened to Lavin last night he said The EPA is also getting ripped by 31%
