The President announced his budget last week.
I’ve been asked to comment on what it means for food programs.
My quick and dirty answer: small-minded and mean-spirited.
The document lacks crucial details essential for interpretation, so you can only guess.
For USDA, for example, the document says the 21% cut in its budget:
It cuts FDA’s department but says nothing about FDA’s food or food safety programs.
One problem is that you have to know how to read these things. For example:
The cuts are in programs that can be cut, the smaller and most vulnerable. Hence: small-minded, mean-spirited.
Urge your representatives to resist!
