This is tricky, especially with the current administration. But if the cuts come from bloated spending areas, like defense, then the principle is sound. Spending is out of control and needs to be maintained, but smaller programs (like the EPA, PBS, etc), especially most of those that the GOP is looking to gut, are not the main contributors to that debt. It's things like defense spending, an unorganized Healthcare system (Single payer should curb those costs) political campaigns, etc. We need to cut costs, but it needs to be in an efficient and intelligent way.
