Obama doesn’t know how to cut

Mr. (John T.) Nightingale summed it up perfectly with his letter published Feb. 17. President (Barack) Obama does in fact want to make drastic cuts to our domestic programs. He should go after pork-barrel-spending before being allowed to make these cuts. A lot of people cannot afford to heat/cool their homes. If he cuts out the help that many people rely upon, that could really hurt us as a nation. And, as far as the water is concerned — we must maintain our treated waters. If he cuts out a billion dollars for water treatment plants, we will not have the money to maintain what we have. The forestry will also have drastic cuts, too. Obama’s budget just does not make sense when there are so many other things that could be cut. Peggy McCray, Auburn
