Our World Leadership Is Offically Over - Trump Plans Massive Cuts
America has voted in (by a non-Democratic Electoral College) the means to do away with the 20th Century America altogether. See you on the other side, fellow has-been Americans. It will soon be Every Man for Himself, no national government help with just about anything. Welcome to the 21st Century Libertarian American and Welcome to the Age of the Narcissist.
…To get such deep cuts, the Trump budget contemplates completely eliminating a number of programs, particularly at the Departments of Energy, Justice, State, Commerce, and Transportation.
On the chopping block, according to The Hill, would be the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting; the Department of Justice’s Legal Services Corporation and Violence Against Women Grants; funding for the Paris Climate Change Agreement and the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Office of Electricity, and Office of Fossil Energy, among others.
It’s likely many other programs will be cut as well, even if they aren’t eliminated entirely. Those details are still to come, as Trump’s budget won’t be finalized for some time. A document outlining its main priorities is expected within 45 days of his taking office, while the full budget will likely be released around mid-April.
But if the House Republican budget is any guide, programs that serve the most needy are likely to be in danger. That proposal derived 62 percent of its cuts from low-income programs, such as food stamps and Pell grants, even though those programs account for just 28 percent of non-defense spending.
