Trump Budget Momentary Bliss
by

The Trump Budget will not pass. The Republicans will go wobbly in the face of the screaming Left and Media. Plus, the Republicans kinda like PBS and all the fat government programs.

In the meantime, though, it’s nice to glory in what could be: a budget that totally eliminates programs. That’s the way it must be done. Any remnants of an office can get funding back. It’s tough to create a new agency out of whole cloth.

Please, Republicans, find your baby spine and back the President’s priorities. Well, most of them. Trump’s budget still increases spending. Reduce spending, Republicans, by eliminating even more government nonsense. The taxpayers will thank you:

In total, the budget proposes to eliminate funding for these 19 agencies:

  • African Development Foundation

  • Appalachian Regional Commission

  • Chemical Safety Board

  • Corporation for National and Community Service

  • Corporation for Public Broadcasting

  • Delta Regional Authority

  • Denali Commission

  • Institute of Museum and Library Services

  • Inter-American Foundation

  • U.S. Trade and Development Agency

  • Legal Services Corporation

  • National Endowment for the Arts

  • National Endowment for the Humanities

  • Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation

  • Northern Border Regional Commission

  • Overseas Private Investment Corporation

  • U.S. Institute of Peace

  • U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness

  • Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
