Tax Cuts Hit Social Programs

The Florida Times-Union has a good brswak down of how Jacksonville nonprofits will be affected by tax cuts.

First Coast African American Chamber of Commerce

Budget: $300,000

Alzheimer's Association

Budget: $1,335,763

Compassionate Families

Budget: $200,000

These agencies are not rolling in pork. Jacksonville is cutting $10 million from public grant funds. These cuts will hit these agencies hard. If people were polled, I'm sure they would have no problem paying tax dollars for caregivers of Alzheimer patients. I'm always amazed at how conservatives view social programs as fiscally irresponsible, but sports arenas as a postive use of tax dollars.

Sports arenas are all important. If Republicans can't jack it in their Hummers to football, what kind of despondent world would we live in?
