PostSubject: Toxic Dems blast Trump plans for deep spending cuts   Thu Jan 19, 2017 5:03 pm

Several Democratic senators harshly criticized spending cuts planned by the Trump administration during a confirmation hearing Thursday for Rick Perry, who is nominated to lead the Energy Department.

“This is absolutely nuts in terms of the future of energy in this country,” Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) told Perry.

“You’re going to have to really do some hard pushing back on this because, assuming this is true, I find it’s almost self-parody to be cutting energy research at this moment in time.”

A report published Thursday by The Hill said that transition officials for President-elect Donald Trump are talking about major cuts to the Energy Department that would reduce nuclear physics and scientific computing research funding to 2008 levels, as well as eliminating three agency initiatives: the Office of Electricity, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and the Office of Fossil Energy.

The proposals under consideration hew closely to a blueprint published by the Heritage Foundation.

The cuts are among trillions of dollars in spending targeted by those close to the president-elect.
