Do we really want to cut the Weather Service?

John Brummett takes on the federal budget debate, with the National Weather Service cut backed by Arkansas's three Republicans in Congress, as an illustration of competing interests in the budget discussion.

I remain unconvinced that privatized weather forecasting would be cheaper or as thorough as the government's service, which still provides much of the fundamental information on which private services rely.

The record is clear that private insurance companies aren't as efficient as the government in covering health expenses.
