Don’t Waste Your Money Listening to Social Scientists

House of Representatives Majority Leader Eric Cantor is anxious to cut funding for social sciences, especially poli sci, according to Inside Higher Ed today: 

Cantor… called for cutting federal funding for research in the social sciences, with the goal of “reprioritizing existing federal research spending,” he said. “Funds currently spent by the government on social science – including on politics of all things – would be better spent helping find cures to diseases.” In doing so, Cantor revived prior efforts by House Republicans to end federal funding for research that goes beyond basic medicine… 

Oddly, these words were delivered at the American Enterprise Institute – which does social science research.  Would the study of “politics of all things” produce any insights on losing presidential elections?  On not being able to elect a candidate to any statewide office in California?  Just asking.
