Donald Trump promised to save money and he is ready to take an ax to government spending, already calling for the end of AT LEAST 17 Federal Agencies and Programs.
Washington has been wrought with waste, fraud and abuse for a VERY long time and it will be fun to see how small the Federal Government looks after the new administration is finished.
It is REAL SIMPLE! The 10th Amendment hands the Federal Government a few items to take care of and hands EVERYTHING else to the states. DC has had their sticky fingers in WAY too much for WAY too long!
Here is a sample of agencies and programs that are facing the chopping block:
Corporation for Public Broadcasting Budget: $445 million
National Endowment for the Arts Budget: $150 million
National Endowment for the Humanities Budget: $150 million
Minority Business Development Agency Budget: $36 million
Economic Development Administration Budget: $215 million
International Trade Administration Budget: $521 million
Manufacturing Extension Partnership Budget: $142 million
Office of Community Oriented Policing Services Budget: $286 million
Office of Violence Against Women Budget: $480 million
The Hill reports:
Staffers for the Trump transition team have been meeting with career staff at the White House ahead of Friday’s presidential inauguration to outline their plans for shrinking the federal bureaucracy, The Hill has learned.
The changes they propose are dramatic.
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting would be privatized, while the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities would be eliminated entirely.
Overall, the blueprint being used by Trump’s team would reduce federal spending by $10.5 trillion over 10 years.
The proposed cuts hew closely to a blueprint published last year by the conservative Heritage Foundation, a think tank that has helped staff the Trump transition.
Similar proposals have in the past won support from Republicans in the House and Senate, who believe they have an opportunity to truly tackle spending after years of warnings about the rising debt.
THEN… we can place money where it is truly needed and more effective, and give the rest back to the American people. They have ALWAYS been better at spending and investing than the federal government. TRUTH!
