    CSMonitor, Washington Post, and the Editorial page of the Dallas Morning News? Such heavy hitters writers who clearly have no ideological self-interest in the matter. :eusa_eh: What's next? Going to reference the Heritage Foundation? :lol:

    Though perhaps you can explain to me Annie how I'm suppose to take such a budget seriously that decides that everyone needs to make sacrifices except the Pentagon and the richest of the rich? Anyone who decides to talk about the budget but won't even cut the defense budget cannot be taken seriously. Simple as that.

    The Republicans bill saves 5.7 trillion. Then makes up for that by giving 4 trillion to corporations and the rich.

    It's like the Gov. of Florida, but on a bigger scale. In Florida, they cut education to the tune of 5 billion and then gave tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires to the tune of 4 billion. And Republicans say, dripping with sarcasm, "Yea, we hate children". Well, the truth is, if you move to harm children, then many would come to the conclusion that you hate them. Republicans are harming America.

    Florida governor presses tax cuts despite budget gap
