    You just know, the Party of Lie couldn't start out on a truthful tone if they wanted to. They get elected on lies, they lie all the way through the year, and lie, lie, lie.:eusa_liar::eusa_liar:

    WASHINGTON — Many people knowledgeable about the federal budget said House Republicans could not keep their campaign promise to cut $100 billion from domestic spending in a single year. Now it appears that Republicans agree.

    Now aides say that the $100 billion figure was hypothetical, and that the objective is to get annual spending for programs other than those for the military, veterans and domestic security back to the levels of 2008, before Democrats approved stimulus spending to end the recession.

    Yet “A Pledge to America,” the manifesto House Republicans published last September, included the promise, “We will roll back government spending to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels, saving us at least $100 billion in the first year alone.”

    Republican leaders have repeatedly invoked the number. On Tuesday the Web site for Representative John A. Boehner, the incoming House speaker, included a link to his national radio address on the Saturday before the midterm elections, in which he said, “We’re ready to cut spending to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels, saving roughly $100 billion almost immediately.”

    Oh, are we already onto Mitch McConnell's #1 priority? Ensuring Obama is a one term President? What happened to spending cuts and job creation? Oh, never mind, Obama's programs have already started the jobs growth. Now what, Repubs?

    Maybe it isn't a lie, if they simply do not CALL them "earmarks" anymore? This devilish little plan brought to you by Tea Bagger darling, Rand Paul....go figure.
