Defund the Arts

On March 16, the Office of Management and Budget released the President’s proposal for a budget for the fiscal year of 2018. In summation, the President’s budget increased funding for all military related departments and entitlements programs and cut everything else. However, among some of his more controversial cuts was the decision to eliminate funding for the “arts.” Funding for programs such as the National Public Radio (NPR), the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA), and other “cultural programs” that having received support from the Federal government has been eliminated.
