    Sorry, but neither one is really cutting anything. A cut would be spending less money than last year, not proposing a new level of spending, and then calling spending less than the increase a cut.

    They'll get the message in 2012. Democrats out, old line Republicans out, Tea Party Republicans in in a big way.

    They've got to cut more.

    Or at least have a plan to cut more sometime in the future.

    Its an insult to all of us to even suggest cutting 6B, 60B over a year when we're running deficits now of 220B a month. We should be gutting it at 500B a year. Things are not going to go well real quickly if this pathetic stuff is passed.

    We NEED to cut 1.3 trillion this year so we get down to a balanced budget. If we can't afford it with out a deficit spending we don't need it no matter what it is.
