The budget IS being cut. Perhaps not as much as you would like but each CR shows a cut. To cut what was supposed to be a DEM budget (which they didn't pass last year because they wanted this current Kabuki) is a good step forward.
Two years from now will be a good time to do something?
No. The 2012 budget is being announced TOMORROW by the GOP complete with $4 trillion in CUTS. Many hearings lie ahead and the reason the Dems are limping ahead with demands for these CR's is that they don't want hearings to start on the 2012 budget.
I've personally been hearing this same crap about cutting government from the GOP for twenty years but government spending and power always seems to increase even when they control the entire Federal government. The most sickening thing are excuses from your average dim-bulb Republican as to why its actually raining on our collective back and we have just got to vote for the R's or those devilish D's will really sink us. Puh-lease. When are these suckers going to realize the purpose of the GOP is to mollify conservatives and waste all their political energies on utterly trivial matters while the real work of creating a One World Government goes on unabated.
