Ryan is as bad as Boehner was.
How Washington REALLY “works.”
Go to it auditors. Let’s see what’s in that mess. I mean, it sounds like even the Pentagon doesn’t know. (In fact we are almost sure that the Pentagon doesn’t have a real grasp on costs. They haven’t had to have a grasp because Republicans (and Dems too – but Dems tend to think wasting the taxpayer’s money isn’t such a big deal) have always given the military piles and piles of money.
Audit and then cut.
This is great.
If ONLY we could have a real government shutdown. How much do you want to bet that the memorials on The Mall remain open this time. (Unlike the shutdown under Obama.)
Everyone wants something.
$77 million for Capitol Hill police and the Library of Congress is a relative pittance but it is the principle that matters. If this Congress is actually “conservative” (sic) spending should go down for pretty much everything. (Including the bloated military by the way.)
But we know that the “conservatives” in Congress don’t agree with the actual shrinking of government. We’ve learned that. But they do like to talk about it.
Click here for the hyper-detailed and dynamic graph. There are some really statist statements in the data. However, on the whole, it’s pretty good. Nice resource.
We need to be cutting everywhere and there are billions and billions which should be cut from the Pentagon budget.
Sorry. Had to post this one.
Everyone loves Santa. He brings gifts. No one wants to tell the kids that maybe it’s time for Santa to rein in the outlays. That’s a real bummer. And with a seemingly unlimited debt credit card why be “responsible” anyway? Let the good times roll.
Sorry wrong holiday.
Play Stations, new bikes, and welfare for all! Debt has no consequences! Hooray!!!
But what if we got MORE if Santa never showed up?
