Blind Cutting

| | Comments (0)

Danny Westneat's column in the Seattle Times reminds us that there's more to cutting programs than just looking at the name of the program. While the Migratory Waterfowl Art Committee sounds like wasteful spending, it only costs $1,000 a year, which is paid for by the thousands the committee brings in annually.

Of course, one could still argue that this committee is not the proper business of government. But we can't argue it will save money to cut it. We should cut a lot of the state and federal governments, but we shouldn't do it blindly.

"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt."
