Three Down – Hundreds to Go

Posted: January 23, 2017 by Moron Pundit in News, Uncategorized

There are rumors that Trump will try to do something I’ve don’t think I’ve ever seen a President do.

Shut down an agency.

Actually, THREE.

The next administration is working on plans to eliminate the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and privatize the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, The Hill reported Thursday.

Combined, the three departments cost around $741 million in 2016, making up a small part of a host of budget reforms needed to cut more than $1 trillion a year from the federal budget.

It’s a rounding error monetarily but it would be nice to see the government get smaller for once.

    I was hoping he’d start with Homeland Security, the Energy Dept and Dept of Ed, but that’s a good start.

    I had hoped for Energy, Education and Labor. But DHS would be just fine, too.

    Why not all of the above? A guy can dream, can’t he? ^_^

    The thing I love most about hitting NEA, NEH and CPB is that they’re all high value targets, politics being downstream of culture and all that.
