    House GOP seeks austerity - TheHill.com


    Republicans and Democrats clashed Monday on what is expected to be a chief battleground of the 2012 election — the fiscal plans of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and House Republicans.

    A day after voters in France and Greece toppled governments in a European backlash against austerity measures, Republicans moved forward with legislation to replace $78 billion in automatic spending cuts to defense and discretionary domestic spending with a much larger $261 billion cut focused only on domestic spending.

    The GOP said its bill highlights the Democrats’ obsessions with raising taxes and inability to accept even reasonable spending cuts to a government that is $16 trillion in debt.

    Austerity won't be enough to fix the damage our inept government has caused.

    We need Spartanism to the third power to even begin to fix this government fuck up.

    Leftist thinking:

    Cutting spending and living within your means = BAD!

    Jacking taxes and spend, spend, spending till we implode = GOOD!

    When has a government that spent 40% more than it's revenue ever survived?
