FTA: The Trump administration's budget for 2018 slashes funding for pretty much all non-military expenditures. The agencies hurt the most are those that we count on for important research and data collection -- especially those that study climate change. The Commerce Department would lose $1.5 billion in funding, mostly targeted at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The EPA would have its budget cut by over 30 percent, more than 50 of its programs would end and more than 3,200 federal workers would find themselves unemployed. The EPA's Office of Research and Development specifically would lose half of its funding.

Because of course it would.

Big Business hates environmental regulations almost as much as they hate labor laws.

Big Oil is still selling the ACC denial BS.

Trump hates smart people. They make him feel dumb. Mostly because he is dumb.

Unable to rise to the challenge of the smart bar, Trump's plan is to deprive everyone of knowledge and try to bring them down to his level.

Bold strategy, Cotton, etc.

Harper tried something like that in Canada but not nearly as cuckoo for cocoa puffs cray as what Trump is proposing.

None of this is appreciably different than what President Pence would do.

But President Pence doesn't galvanize people like Trump does.

Cherish President Trump, liberals.  It may not look like it, but you got a gift.

And the sad thing is that someone told me that Hillary was Republican-lite, so she would have done pretty much the same thing or worse if she had won.  We were boned either way.

I must have missed it when I blinked.

No worries. Trump will have his son Barron sort out all of the data on his iPad. He's a real whiz at the computer stuff. Very talented, bigly smart.

This story appears to be about the control or possibly destruction of scientific data.
This is part of the right wing radical agenda, here in Canada, Prime Minister Sweatervest and his minions landfilled 50+ years worth f records from a longtitudinal lake study, one of the ones that was instrumental in proving the effects of acid rain.
It is not a bug, it is a feature.

Most of the people who voted for him are cheering this.

Crippling climate science?  LIBERAL HOAX!

Ending programs Obama initiated?  FIXING ZEROBAMA'S MISTAKES!

NASA cuts?  WASTE OF MONEY!

Ripping up environmental regulations and labor laws?  HELPING THE ECONOMY THRIVE!

Ending the ACA and replacing it with a plan that will directly harm millions, cripple Medicare and direct an endless stream of money out of your pocket and into the bank accounts of insurance companies?  GET GOVERNMENT OUT OF HEALTHCARE!

Trump is literally the first president in history elected on the basis of burning down and destroying what every president before him accomplished.  He's taking a wrecking-ball to the 20th Century and his supporters will cheer him as the entire building beneath them collapses.

Ok.

Big business interests are among the top handful of threats to this country and this planet... but somehow the Dems can't go return to their pro-individualist economic roots and take on big business interests using century old antitrust law, despite having the greatest opportunity to do so -- and to help reverse their egregious errors in the aforementioned -- since they deviated from their winning economic position, post-Watergate.

I literally long longer understand the center/center-right wing of the Democratic party.  It's nonsensical. It's inexplicable.

To be fair even the republicans were expecting a reach around by this point.  Hillary promised lube.
