Dont know why we harassed the Senate Democrats for refusing to propose a budget for 4 years.....with this joke of a budget, we can gladly wait at least 4 more years for these progressive geniuses to do it again.
Another liberal "balanced" approach.
Let’s pull up the scorecard and see what we can find:
The $975 billion in alleged "spending cuts" include $240 billion in savings from the end of the Afghanistan war and $242 billion in reduced interest payments, according to a source.Remember, that’s $975,000,000,000 in “cuts” over the next ten years, or roughly the size of just this year’s totally real new debt. But now let’s look at the two biggest items, war and interest payments.
The savings from the Afghanistan War assume we were going to fight there indefinitely, even though the commander-in-chief (remember him?) said we’d be out in 2014. That’s like saying, “I’m going to spend 242 dollars on this new stereo I’ve had my eye on.” But then changing your mind and claiming that you’d saved $242. I can save us five trillion dollars right now, immediately, by promising to terraform and colonize each of Jupiter’s moons with clones of Hugh Grant, then canceling the program due to “extreme silliness.”
Then there’s the $240,000,000,000 in reduced interest payments on the existing debt. The only proper response to that is “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA,” followed by wiping away tears of pure blood. Interest payments will go nowhere but up, especially if Rosy Scenario somehow comes through with her promise of future robust growth.
