Looks like the push to get everything they want changed, has gone into high gear.
We will be ashamed of this country by Jan. 20th if you are not already ashamed.

582 million dollars to federal OSHA is a boondoggle waste of taxpayers borrowing money.
In the midwest steel mills, auto factories, etc. the federal OSHA is a total failure as are the
states OSHA departments.

This is witnessed as anti worker, anti union, anti safety.

OSHA employees need a RIF, as do EPA lazies.
How many people know that the Flint Michigan water with metals decision was blessed by Chicago regional EPA office, which has 1,000 employees.

They just don’t give a damn. Who’s going to buy all their consumer crap if they kill us all off?

$700 billion in additional tax money to the bloated military while millions are being infected with COVID-19 and millions can’t access care due to no insurance or inadequate insurance, what is wrong with this picture? How many other programs are being cut that serve people for this perverse priority? Are they, additionally, planning another war?

The trump regime and its spoiled child emperor narcissist will salt the earth and burn the fields as they lose power - the ultimate finger to the nation. The effect of their plan to ruin all they cannot steal or sell-off, or defund or “roll-back” or exploit or sell cheap to crony polluters and environmental rapists is a de facto treason - the premeditated sabotage and undermining or theft of all before them as they spit on the US Constitution - then they will “pardon” their criminal allies and themselves and make the next administration as impossible to govern and restore sanity as they can, and that is a crime as well!.
The premeditated actions that diminish our republic as well as “Democracy” are a treason, not to mention the direct and indirect deaths of tens of thousands, and the perpetrators beginning with the orange chancre himself must be held to full account, not the craven Obama complicity “we must look forward, not back”, and that means investigation and vigorous prosecutions or else the votes and intentions of millions will mean nothing and the integrity and honor od the Biden years will be spineless and moral-less - will mean nothing - zilch, niente, nada, bupkus jack bugger-all and that failure to act will be complicity - silence IS complicity!.

Is this an actual cut to OSHA, or a (stop the annual increase) type of cut?
