I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed managing the camp and that the kids had a good time. I went to a boy scout camp many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it.
When a budget is in the red, spending has to be reduced. The budget will probably call for non-essential departments such as these to be eliminated or have their funding reduced. Personally, I’d also like to see the Department of Education get eliminated, since schools should be managed at a state level, not a federal level.
You and I would probably disagree about where cuts should be made. However, I think we’d be in broad agreement about the need for fiscal responsibility and balanced budgets.
