    WASHINGTON — The White House budget office has drafted a hit list of programs that President Trump could eliminate to trim domestic spending, including longstanding conservative targets like the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Legal Services Corporation, AmeriCorps and the National Endowments for the Arts and the Humanities.

Fun fact: The NEAH got $149m last year, or $30m less than Ivanka sleeping in NY will cost us yearly.

    Mr. Trump has spoken volubly about the nation’s drug problems, yet the list includes the White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy, which dispenses grants to reduce drug use and drug trafficking. And despite Mr. Trump’s vocal promotion of American exports, the list includes the Export-Import Bank, which has guaranteed loans to foreign customers of American companies since the 1930s.

We've been down this road before. The last time Congress killed ImEx Boeing cut 500 jobs. Then Congress reinstated it. It's a Tea Party favorite that demonstrates the average GOP congressman doesn't understand economics.

Let's see how this goes.
