Why Trump’s budget cut for arts funding will be a cultural disaster — Matthew Rosza, Salon

In addition to eliminating the National Endowment for the Arts, Trump’s budget will also jettison the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, according to The Washington Post. The costs of these programs equal $148 million, $445 million, $230 million, and $148 million respectively. Considering their combined total amounts to $971 million, their fiscal burden is a pittance compared to the trillions spent on defense and the military — which Trump plans on increasing. http://www.salon.com/2017/03/18/why-trumps-budget-cut-for-arts-funding-will-be-a-cultural-disaster-and-makes-no-fiscal-sense/
