Trump Just Cut These 11 Agencies In His New Budget Proposal That Will Save Nearly One Billion Dollars
President Donald Trump is one lean, mean fiscal budget planner.
The president has revealed in his first budget proposal a plan for massive federal spending cuts to the tune of $1.88 billion in departments and agencies that serve little or no useful purpose.
Trump knows that federal spending has gotten way out of control and needs to be reigned in if the nation is to avoid a debt default. That time is fast approaching as the national deficit surpasses the unbelievable $20 trillion mark.
Under the Obama regime federal spending and the size of the government grew exponentially while at the same time the nation's private sector -- and its tax revenues -- contracted significantly.
The one thing this Republican president understands is that when facing a national debt crisis the one thing you don't do is maintain or increase spending levels in areas whose functions are superfluous, overlapping, or politically motivated.
At the top of Trump's budget hit-list is the National Endowment for the Arts and Humanities ($292 million savings).
As the Daily Wire reports: "The NEA also is a form of corporate welfare, as "one-fifth of direct NEA grants go to multi-million-dollar arts organizations" and provides subsidies toward those who are well-connected with the government rather than on individual merit, resulting in a crowding-out effect, per a 1997 Heritage Foundation report.
The NEA and NEH [National Endowment for the Humanities], like most government agencies, are guilty of spending money on ridiculous initiatives, such as $47,000 on teaching children to laugh and $10,000 for a Zombie In Love children's musical."
Other proposed Trump budget cuts include:
- Corporation for Public Broadcasting ($485 million)
- U.S. Trade and Development Agency ($594 million over 10 years)
- Woodrow Wilson International Program for Scholars ($11 million)
- Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation ($175 million)
- Denali Commission to combat climate change ($14 million)
- U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness ($4 million)
- Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board ($11 million)
- Overseas Private Investment Corp. ($63 million)
- Institute of Museum and Library Sciences ($231 million)
- Legal Services Corp., noted for its ties to leftist causes.
The Trump administration knows the country is in serious financial trouble and that throwing away taxpayer dollars as political handouts won't solve the problem.
As for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, they can raise 100 percent of their own funding from liberal people who can always use another free mug or DVD.
