Pro-Science, my ass
Neither is education. K-12 and vocational programs get cut 13%. Higher education gets cut 20%.
At that rate, we'll have 100% placement of our science students in 2050. All five of them will get jobs straight out of college.
Oh, but General Science/Space gets a 10 billion dollar boost, you say? I guess it is more important that we go to Mars than we have a competent healthcare system that stands ready to address biological threats, manmade or otherwise. Dollars to donuts that the technology gleaned from sending a human to live on Mars will coincidentally allow us to drill more efficiently for fossil fuels at the bottom of the ocean, or something similarly ridiculous. That's IngSoc for corporate welfare, in case you rely on 1984 references to get through the day. What a shocker. Here's another one: a 29% reduction (4.4 billion) in Energy cuts. That's the money which would be used to wean us from fossil fuels.
No pattern here at all. I don't see how we could possibly be headed for a scientifically illiterate society that is forced to suckle at the crude oil teat and like it, because they don't even know a better way exists.
Good job George, way to keep the proles barefoot and pregnant.
Incidentally, you can count on a 10.3 billion dollar cut to Veteran's medical benefits over the same period. Because this president is a compassionate president.
