For those arguing NO because its not being Labeled “essential” is misinformed because the USDA is needed to protect the public by setting standards for keeping the public safe they also protect and maintain our forests to prevent wildfire and excessive logging etc. These agencies also help with the development and maintenance of rural infrastructure. Regardless of politics this is essential because without such an agency no emergency funding is available for farmers. Idiots making the point to cut out non essentials don’t realize these are not immediate impact services rather over time these will become more noticeable as the food we eat becomes less safe and forests are no longer maintained etc. Getting rid of agencies does not fix the huge tax cut the rich just received and skyrocketing spending being implemented by republicans and Trump. Get informed and do research before spreading ignorance.
