It's an old game. When you want more money, you take away from the things that the common folk want. When they scream, the agency just points at the funding cuts and says,"if we only had a little more money". Same thing happened during the sequester cuts, they took man power away from the vessel documentation center. They new if we had to wait 6 to 9 months for our documents, we scream until the house and Senate heard us.
