President Donald Trump has just unveiled his first budget. It takes a hatchet to various departments and abolishes a multitude of agencies. While it won't solve the country's debt crisis, it is a good step toward eliminating unnecessary agencies and programs.
Here are 11 agencies that Trump slashes in his budget.
1. National Endowment for the Arts and Humanities. The Daily Wire has previously reported:
Budget hawks have long called for eliminating the NEA and NEH, as they are both emblematic of unnecessary, wasteful spending of taxpayer money. The federal government doesn't need to be involved in the arts and humanities, as the $13.1 billion in private funding easily dwarfed the $292 million the government spent on the NEA and NEH in 2011. ...
2. Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The CPB is the agency that funds NPR and PBS as well as other stations. The agency costs around $485 million a year; should Trump's budget pass, the federal funding that CPB would lose could easily be counteracted through private funding.
3. Legal Services Corporation. The LSC is sold as an agency that provides legal services to the poor; however, the Daily Wire has reported that the LSC actually focuses "on lawsuits on behalf of leftist causes" and is " rife with wasteful spending." The LSC receives $375 million a year.Find out the other 8 agencies and read the rest of the story HERE.
