House-approved plan would cut into Pacific Tsunami Warning Center
WASHINGTON — A spending plan approved by the House would slash funding for a tsunami warning center that issued an alarm after the devastating earthquake in Japan.
The plan approved by the GOP-controlled House last month would trigger deep cuts for the National Weather Service, including the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii.
A union representing workers at the tsunami center said the proposed cuts could result in furloughs and rolling closures of National Weather Service offices.

They can spend a sh!t ton of money flying around to different countries for whatever reason but when it comes down to the safety of the people that pay for their crap they turn a blind eye and cut funding!?
