- $120 million saved by eliminating Teaching American History (they actually only saved 46 million, because funding for this program was gutted last year, but I'm going to use the fully funded amount so that Congress gets full credit for their heroic cost cutting.)
- $27 million saved by eliminating funding for foreign language education
- $25 million saved by cutting funding to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education
Well done, Congress. Well done. But since I really don't trust your money management skills, can I have my 55 cents in cash?
