Because it isn’t possible to get the same bang for fewer bucks by using the smaller amount more efficiently. No, just keep throwing money at the thing; if a single dollar sticks, it’s sufficient.
That’s the apparent position of folks on the left like Bill Nye, the guy with a Master’s degree in Engineering who represents himself as “The Science Guy.”
Nye, who served as an honorary co-chair for the March for Science, chided lawmakers who ignore scientific research in areas like climate change and railed against the Trump administration’s proposed budget cuts.
I’ll leave the irony of a climatista chiding others for ignoring scientific research to others. The question here is the budget cut proposals that so confound the engineer.
It’s possible, and it’s necessary, to spend our tax dollars much more efficiently, but this is a fact as lost on pseudo-scientists as it is on most any Progressive-Democrat.
