Since they don't want to raise taxes . In fact, I've heard that they want to lower taxes. That money is going to have to come from somewhere. Several places have been targeted for that money. They want to cut funding for Public Broadcasting, the National Endowment of the Arts and probably many other places. I would love to talk about those things but I only have one blog and I'm only one person.
Anyone who has read this blog for a while knows that I am a fan of the Coast Guard. They do alot to protect this country. And I don't understand why someone would want to cut their budget given his objectives in other areas.
It probably means that the Coast Guard will be asked to do the same with even less. I suspect that this cut wont see the light of day but it never should have even been proposed in the first place.
