As The saying goes, "a new broom sweeps clean", as in The day before The inauguration, trump political news site The Hill reported it would seriously consider cancel national art fund (NEA) and The national humanities (NEH), as a part of The cuts in government spending.
However, the report about the new government information source of this oil painting move is very vague, but when it comes to the White House and the trump transition team internal circulated a budget "blueprint".
"Overall, The team's trump 'blueprint' show will cut The federal government $10.5 trillion in 10 years of spending," The Hill site editor Alexander Bolton wrote. In 2016, the federal government spending is about 3.9 trillion.
According to The Hill site, in addition to cancel The already not bounteous arts government funding, it would also extend to The privatization of public broadcasting company, and The sources of energy, commercial, transportation, justice, and state department funding cuts and orchestration.
In the past 20 years, the national art fund spending in 2000 from $97.6 million to $2010 in 167.5 million. The fund appropriation of $148 million last year.
Such as art development groups, however, the American association of art (Americans for the Arts) several years ago, according to budget allocations agencies failed to keep up with inflation, actually has shrunk dramatically. "If national art fund budget for 1992 remains the same, was adjusted by inflation should be $289 million, 2013 rather than $146 million."
Congress will ultimately control the federal government's purse strings, any President's budget will be a difficult process to implement. Including by high-level affected institutions the opportunity to comment and call for change. The Hill website said: "The trump cabinet has yet to cut its reform of The internal resources to notice."
But republican control of congress have reason to welcome this kind of oil painting reproductions budget.
Bolton noted that news of the budget plan and conservative American Heritage Foundation (the Heritage Foundation), released last year proposed cancel plans to launch the national art fund is consistent (the project also advocated the abolition of civilian medical bill, and against President Obama recently told Chelsea manning pardon).
Bolton wrote, proposed cuts could also be conservative republican study committee has adopted the budget, the proposal on behalf of the opinions of the majority of house republicans. As the new vice President Mike Pence (Mike Pence) work before the heritage foundation staff Russ Vought and John Gray, a will be responsible for this matter.
National art fund from 80 s to 90 s culture has been since the war is the republican eyesore. When to support Robert Mapplethorpe (Robert Mapplethorpe) such radical avant-garde artists exhibition, also between people has caused quite a stir. Senate Jesse Mr. Helms said filming "urine soaking in Christ" (Piss Christ) artist andreas, Serrano (Andres Serrano) "is not an artist but a jerk." But contains its exhibition work is supported by the public.
