Default Trump's Budget isn't so great afterall

It seems each day now I read in our daily newspaper where the Trump budget isn't help middle America.

He has plans to cut 2.5 million from the Dept of Transportation which is going to effect the metro rail line from Chicago to LA. In that stops in smaller cities and town between these two cities will be non stops.

Both stops in eastern KS., in the cities of Lawrence and here in Topeka will be written off.

Well this is going to cause a few problems for people who use these stops to get to their jobs here in Topeka.

Like these long haul drivers who,pick up T.T. at Frito Lays and drive them to where they need to go.

Other will be effected also. Why is it that this budget plan seems to be cutting needed items. Another is PBS TV. I watch a lot on PBS as I get both local KTWU and the KCTV in Kansas City.

My local has 3 media outlets and each has great programing in the middle of the week and all weekend long.
Plus the one has foreign films with sub titles during the evening and at 2 AM it is rt.news which has real great news broadcasts.

Well these neither effect the Trump because he goes to black tie parties. And has any type of home entertainment he wants.

But again these PBS station's get about a $1.35 a year from the Feds for each American. Man that is so damn low of a percentage from the U.S. Govt.

And look at what any child gains from watching PBS. They learn so much before ever getting into a 1st grade class room. More than mom could teach them in the same time period.

So I guess Trump can send 57 tomahawks for some Syrian children but here at home wants them dumb.

So this to has to be Political grab ash payback.

Amtrak doesn't generate enough revenue from passengers to cover its costs but why should that be a problem when the taxpayers can be forced to make up the difference. It makes perfect sense that because Trump has a private plane we should be forced to subsidize Amtrak.

PBS was created back in the days when there were very few TV channels, now there are hundreds plus more and more internet streaming channels. Still PBS gets tax dollars extracted by force from tax payers. Royalties from Sesame Street alone could finance PBS but yet the pockets of taxpayers must be picked so you can watch foreign movies at 2:00 AM.

Joe Biden made sure Amtrak received billions every year because he liked riding the train for his daily commute to DC. Sesame Street has made billions for its creators but continues to benefit from taxpayer subsidies. The subsidies are not helping the middle class, they are political corruption.

PBS and NPR need punished IMHO.

Time to lower the boom on these left wing media crap paid for with Republican dollars. They can find a rich Democrat willing to fund their liberal bullsh1t producers and writers. Republicans no longer wish to keep either one alive with our money.

Regards, Kirk

Man you people and those whom thanked you are bitter, sure to see nothing gets done for any Americans.

Like the only people whom pay taxes are Republicans. Stupid... And it is showing big time..

Maybe not your children but a damn lot of other children have learned from many of the PBS shows for kids. I know mine did. And she was far ahead of many of these other children in her 1 grade class.

My wife and both watched these shows with her. All I recall now is I hated Big Bird and Barney. :shurg


And the ridership you speak about is in the East Coast areas. Out of Chicago to LA at each smaller city or town people use the trains.

And if Trump want to save some money he better stop each weekend in Fl. As they want to be paid back for all the costs each time he uses the Trump Southern W.H.

And then we have all the waste in so many areas of the Federal Govt. So why pick on what is working? Not one of you cared to expess anything on this. Like I said stupid shows when aww hell piss off.

I wonder how many of those people rely on the train service to get to their jobs and consequently pay taxes...l

Man, you are so anxious to pick the pockets of the taxpayer for whatever so-called noble cause to help "children" you come up with. Sesame Street and Barney as well as other popular kids shows will do just fine as commercial TV shows Sesame Street makes hundreds of millions annually for its corporation, how about if we help the taxpayer by taking away the subsidy to the rich? How is it helping people to coerce the taxpayer into increasing Sesame Street's parent corporation profits?

More important than PBS TV to your kids success in school was parental involvement. But again, children's educational television is far too valuable as a commercial property to vanish without subsidies.

The excuse for curbing any government wasteful spending is always "pick on somebody else" or it is not that much of the Federal budget. In this case it is $400 million a year to subsidize profitable corporations like Sesame Street. Sorry, that is not picking on a program that is responsible stewardship of tax funds.

I'll play. Present evidence of the tax revenue generated by commuters using Amtrak along with proof that they have no other option for the commute. Until then it is just speculation.

Amtrak gets its billions in subsidies because Joe Biden liked to commute to and from his Senate job using it. I don't know about you but I'd rather not have to pay the cost of my commute then subsidize someone making a Senator's salary as well.

Well if I brought one to the table of understanding all is well. As no one can please ashoes who want to remain asholes for life...

They will take any word written and twist it with the hate they have welling up inside so one looks small in their eyes..

Yet there it is all in format for the world to read.. And see the weakness of these pitiful twisted attempts trying to make me out the loser..

While right there in the first few lines of that twisted material they call debate is simple fact.

My words of truth and their of twist awww why bother with these clowns any longer...

I said what I wanted to and AZRWinger has failed to change that.
