Well, we cut funding to the FDA...and now we have toxic Chinese honey making it into food supply.
Then, we cut funding for the IRS and they can't afford enough people to process 'iffy' 501c applications. (Actually heard a senator say, if they are short on staff hire contractors. Nearly spit out my coffee.)
Oh, and we cut funding to FEMA and that has gone SO WELL.
What else, we cut funding to many many investigative groups in the US so enforcement of anything is down across the board. What would they investigate...how about rail cars full of ammonia???
We took all that money and are paying for boats the navy doesn't want, we are paying for planes the air force doesn't want, we are paying for, what, EIGHTEEN different forms of camo so that each and every force/unit/arm of defense can have their own custom outfits!!!
GAH...they say, can't cut the military lose jobs. How about all the jobs lost by cutting the stuff the right doesn't want like regulation enforcement and safety?!?!
