Trump Getting Ready to Cut $10.5 Trillion (Yes Trillion with a T!) in Spending over 10 Years

I guess we might need to get used to seeing commercials on Public Television.
The departments of Commerce and Energy would see major reductions in funding, with programs under their jurisdiction either being eliminated or transferred to other agencies. The departments of Transportation, Justice and State would see significant cuts and program eliminations.

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.
Thankfully this might also mean no more Piss Christ sponsored with Tax Payer money. I guess they might roll Commerce into Treasury and maybe Energy into Interior. I would be willing to bet Energy will probably drop all of its conservation work and maybe roll out its lab work to Universities or what-have-you. I also wonder if State would get rid of its security force as well? In any case this is why the tax cuts will be revenue neutral because they are going to cut spending by a bunch.
