How Republicans want to cut spending

Basically, anything that has to do with arts, culture, public transit, infrastructure or the environment:

The Republican Study Committee proposal would cut fiscal 2011 spending back to 2008 levels, which would save $80 billion, and push spending in fiscal 2012-2021 even lower, to fiscal 2006 levels, which would save $2.29 trillion, according to a summary. The proposal would strike funding for specific government programs, including the following:

• Corporation for Public Broadcasting subsidy: $445 million a year.

• National Endowment for the Arts: $167.5 million a year.

• Amtrak Subsidies: $1.565 billion a year.
