The thought that the budget might actually be cut scares you

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.

You must be using Washington math. Boehner, Ryan, et all are all blowing smoke.. Year-to-year spending by the Federal government is increasing every year. There are NO cuts, only accounting gimmicks. When the absolute spending (adjusted for "real" inflation) is reduced year-to-year, then one can say cuts are happening. Until then, it's all B.S.

If QE3 happens, everyone will quickly see how fragile is the house of cards built by the elites in D.C.

**************************************************************

Congress has cut $10 billion over a five week period via two continuing resolutions.

Yet the national debt is increasing at a rate of approximately $4 billion A DAY!

Pardon the unintended pun, but that just ain’t gonna cut it!

“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.”

The Dems want a crisis NOW in order to feed and create more chaos.

There are some simplistic conservative gripers who arent seeing the bigger picture here. We win on 2011, then we move on to 2012 and the Ryan roadmap and BIG enchilada, that is our game plan.

Do nothing and foment a crisis to prevent any discussion of the big items is the Dem game plan....


“(CNSNews.com) - The fiscal 2012 budget proposal unveiled today by House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R.-Wis.) offers sweeping reforms in federal spending, including defunding and repealing the health-care law signed last year by President Barack Obama and converting the federal share of the Medicaid program into block grants to state governments.

The Republican proposal says one of its aims is “making sure that not a penny goes toward implementing the new [health care] law” enacted last year.

This includes repealing about $800 billion in new taxes that were built into the law.”
