    John Kerry, the biggest of the big-government liberals, saying that he wants to cap federal spending?!? This is laughable. But it proves my axiom that to get elected nationally, liberals have to run as moderates/conservatives.


    Kerry Says He Would Cap Federal Spending
    By NEDRA PICKLER, Associated Press Writer

    WASHINGTON - Democrat John Kerry (news - web sites) said Wednesday if he is elected president he will not let government programs outside of security and education grow beyond the rate of inflation, even if it means cutting some of his own campaign promises and existing government programs.

    "When I say a cap on spending, I mean it," Kerry said in a speech prepared for delivery Wednesday. "We will have to make real choices — and that includes priorities of my own."

    Kerry said he would freeze the federal travel budget, reduce oil royalty exemptions for drilling on federal lands, cut 100,000 federal government contractors, and cut electricity used by the federal government by 20 percent, among other programs.

    It has changed wording a bit since I got the link, but the points are still there:

    It is worth a look. Cap federal spending? HOW?!?!?!?!
