Re­gard­ing the March 16 front-page ar­ti­cle

The Washington Post Sunday - - SUNDAY OPINION -

“Trump seeks deep fed­eral cuts”:

What we spend money on says some­thing about what we value. The pres­i­dent, through his pro­posed bud­get cuts, is mak­ing quite a state­ment about what he does not value. He ap­par­ently has no use for food safety, med­i­cal re­search, cli­mate change, pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion, ur­ban de­vel­op­ment, op­por­tu­ni­ties for low-in­come peo­ple to pur­chase a home, job train­ing, air travel safety, any­thing that sounds artsy — the list goes on. He also seems to not care a whit about those pesky In­ter­nal Rev­enue Ser­vice agents who, if they keep their jobs, might mess with him.
