Check out the List of 66 Programs Axed by the New Trump Budget

The Hill has a nice report on the 66 programs that President Trump’s budget would cut.

The cuts would save about $27 Billion, which is really just a drop in the bucket of government spending, but we have to start somewhere. Not all of the programs would be immediately cut either, some of them would receive funding in 2018 and be slowly phased out over the coming years.

When Budget Director Mick Mulvaney was questioned about Trump’s budget he jokingly argued that no one would be sorry to see funding for a climate change musical cut.

He’s right. But, i’d sure love to see the budget cut list grow to include hundreds of other programs and billions more in spending. These cuts are nice, but we need deeper and more expansive cuts if we hope to revitalize our national economy.
