Reid: Republican budget cuts go after ‘little children’
TheHill ^ | 03/09/11 | Josiah Ryan

Posted on 03/09/2011 9:33:00 AM PST by ColdOne

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) once again attacked Republicans’ budget proposal on Wednesday, claiming its cuts target “little children” and “poor little boys and girls.”

He added that the spending bill, which will face a vote in the Senate later on Wednesday afternoon, is “insulting” to the American people.

“H.R. 1 is a mean-spirited bill that would cut the heart out of the recovery that we have in America today,” said Reid. “It goes after little children, poor little boys and girls ... we want them to learn to read.”

Driving off the cliff to total economic collapse will be bad for little children.

It doesn’t matter what the GOP goes for, the charges are aways the same. They need to go for bigger cuts. They are going to expend significant political capital on a very small reduction in spending.

Also by cutting specific things, they opened themselves up to the usual attacks. They needed to do an overall across the board reduction, focused on wastes, repetitive programs, and a shift closer to zero-based budgeting to justify each and every program within each department. Allow the committees to examine specifics, and force the bureaucracy to make some of the decisions themselves. Oh well. Our side never seems to know how to play the game.

It’s about time Senator Reid made no sense in his rants, as if he ever did. It’s also pretty funny considering what he has turned to arguing about so suddenly. I wonder what the people in Nevada are thinking right now, having recently re-elected him? I hope that someone figures out that he’s worth switching out for someone else at some point, he’s served a little too long....

Once again, the democrats use the bodies of little kids as shields. At the same time, they fully support their brutal dismemberment at Planned Parenthood.

So, here we go again with the "children and minorities hardest hit" scenario, so old and worn by the left.

The arteries in Reid's brain are obviously hardening rapidly as he chooses to remain stuck in yesteryear, when this childish ploy might have worked a little better.

Any 2nd grader with fundamental math skills can see that you can't keep spending more than you have, and expect to have a future FOR YOUR CHILDREN.

The budget cuts proposed by the GOP - elected by people in November who EXPECT them - are so that our children won't be paying for the obama-reid-pelosi spending spree for the rest of their lives.

“”The man wants to borrow money from the Chinese “”

Triggered my memory. Last night Greta said that we are committed to protect Taiwan from China and we will borrow the money from China so we can protect Taiwan....

Reid? Can’t be more stupid/ignorant than that...We’ve already thrown enough money at education and the poor little boys and girls STILL can’t read.....that means they will become dem voters so that should make Harry happy.

Typical Leftist wussy, hiding behind kids as a scare tactic. Harry Reid doesn't have a brain or a place to put one.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Then I guess all the democrat cuts just go after the little childrens’ parents.

I also guess that the democrats unbridled, out of control debt spending goes after the little children and their children, and their childrens’ children.

Actually, there’s a conversation/argument between Boxer and Santorum on the Senate floor where she gives away that it isn’t a baby until the parents take it home from the hospital.

Listen to yourself, Harry. You just let out a litany of insults in that one statement. First of all, there is no recovery in America. Children will learn to read, but the educational system set up by liberals like you makes it pretty hard to educate them. Why are so many of them poor. The poor have been sanctioned by your idea of government. You have taken away their pride and hope. When they reach adulthood their chains and shackles will be even heaver than the previous generation's.

This is how insane and self-destructive our nation has become:

The Republicans are proposing to cut an amount ($60B) equivalent to 1.67% (less than 2%) of a massively-bloated Federal budget. The Democrats propose to cut just 0.167% from the budget (less than 2/10's of 1%).

The Democrat proposal, if enacted would cut an amount equivalent to 0.375% of the projected 2011 deficit ($6 billion out of $1.6T), or, to put it another way: the amount of debt Washington will incur in the next 33 hours. But Harry's just worried about "the children", see?

I think the little boys and girls can’t read in large part because of the money we’ve thrown at education. It’s gone to support bureaucrats and unions and it’s more about diluting curicculum and protecting the worst students and teachers. Return the control to the state and local level and there will be fewer problem schools, fewer “supervisors”, fewer problem teachers and better performance. And we’ll save money.
