The Trump Administration is calling for massive cuts in the budgets of the State Department, the Transportation Security Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency, among others government departments.
To cut the State Department when our foreign relations are in such flux makes no sense, and endangers our national security.
To cut the TSA, when the emphasis has been on trying to prevent terrorism in our airports and on our airlines, seems totally suicidal, particularly for an administration emphasizing the issue by having a travel ban on six Muslim nations.
To cut the EPA endangers cleanup of our air and water, and undermines our ability to deal with the reality of climate change and global warming.
It all seems to be part of White House Adviser Stephen Bannon’s desire “to deconstruct the administrative state”, all of the government agencies and programs created since the time of Theodore Roosevelt through the Presidency of Barack Obama.
To many, it would seem to be promoting total chaos and anarchy in a dangerous world.
