Keeping Score

CNN has a nice list of what got cut from the Senate version of the stimulus plan. C believes it's a philosophical thing--the GOP won't fund programs they don't support ideologically, no matter what the consequences might be. Thus the cuts to Head Start and the National Science Foundation, not to mention hybrid vehicles for the feds. My favorite: the cut of $100 million for "science."

School boards who are counting on federal dollars to get us over this hump should note the cuts to Title I, school nutrition, and school construction. Perhaps more important is the $40 billion reduction to states and localities. Ouch.
