We clip and paste, you decide:

* CUTS IN CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION PROGRAMS: In a report on these, comes the following:

State Sen. Missy Irvin, R-Mountain View, chairman of the Senate Interim Committee on Children and Youth, said she supports the decision to cut preventative programs to keep caseworkers on the job. She said the federal spending cuts underscore the need for state lawmakers to take a close look at state spending priorities during next year’s legislative session.

“We’ve got to use our money wisely and put it toward programs that work, and if they don’t work we need to get rid of those programs,” Irvin said.

... Irvin said she believes the federal government should cut wasteful spending rather than raise revenue.

Does this mean spending on child abuse prevention is wasteful spending?
