The MOST Taxpayer Plan in Decades

That is the Citizens Against Government Waste(CAGW) thoughts about the Presidents budget proposal.  Here are a few details the CAGW noted:

Most notably, the Trump budget proposal includes the elimination of many programs that have been identified by CAGW as wasteful for years in Prime Cuts and the Congressional Pig Book, such as the Appalachian Regional Commission, Corporation for National and Community Service, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Delta Regional Authority, Denali Commission, Institute of Museum and Library Services, Legal Services Corporation, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Endowment for the Arts, Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation, Overseas Private Investment Corporation, and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.  These programs have also been identified as wasteful by the Government Accountability Office and agency Inspectors General.

“This budget pushes back on the toxic Washington conventional wisdom that if the federal government does not fund it, regulate it, or control it, nothing will ever be accomplished.  Countless federal programs are duplicative, fragmented, and outside of the purview of the federal government.  States, cities, local officials, and the private sector can better manage and fund these priorities, and the Trump budget rightly returns those principles to Washington for the first time since the early 1980s,” concluded Schatz.

CAGW is the nation’s largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.
