Lame excuses

The insulting excuse for “budget cuts” that Obama and the Democrats have offered makes a mockery of serious budgeting.

But given their terror of forcing a government shutdown in this tea-soaked climate, Democrats were forced to counteroffer with a cut of $10.5 billion, or 0.28 percent of the federal budget. Imagine you have a budget of $10,000 (about 40 percent of it borrowed on a credit card), then “slash” 28 bucks. That’s what it’s like to be a frugal Democrat.  Dems’ Dull Budget Scissors – Jonah Goldberg – National Review Online.

In other words, after 2 years of exploding spending, a return to 2008 spending levels would spell the end of civilization.
