Stupid Politician Tricks #5

The Republicans are proposing $32,000,000,000.00 in budget cuts out of a $3,700,000,000,000.00 federal budget that already exceeds federal revenues by over $1,500,000,000,000.00.  Let's see, that's less than 1% of a budget that needs to be cut by more than 40% to be balanced.  Story here.

That is like throwing a bucket of water on a house afire.

Why not just vote for more spending and throw us over the cliff that we are precariously perched on?

I'm tired of waiting for the apocalypse.  The Republicans should just join the Democrats in finishing off the Grand Experiment, rather than jerk our chains with this faux fiscal responsibility. We have been in need of a good revolution since 1913.  Bring it on.

Balancing the budget is not impossible, but a lot of sacred cows will have to take a one-way visit to McBurgertown.  John Stossel has a plan to make a lot of hamburger, but it would result in a balanced budget.

Too bad our politicians are too busy playing stupid tricks on us to save our great-great-great-great-granchildren from crushing debt.
