    Seriously. WTF?

    After a rousing declaration of fiscal sanity during the state of the union last night, we get a nice face full of cold water this morning. What was the lesson learned by our representatives after the 2010 mid-terms? Simply that they should work together to screw us over rather than beating each other up for the opportunity. Once again, thank you to the most successful Congress in modern history!

    Yea, lets just freeze spending, by not spending more over the massive increase we can say we have decreased spending.

    Obama is going to decrease spending, from 10 trillion dollars to 9.5 trillion dollars, Obama is cutting spending half a trillion dollars over ten years, that is an accomplishment we all want. That is why we voted for the change, Obama got it, now we have to support Obama and his massive cuts in what Obama could of spent.

    You do understand that, as far as the budget is concerned, the year started in October, and the election was in November, don't you?

    Just imagine what the deficit would have been had the last Congress actually done its job and passed a budget.
