I was scanning the news over at the liberal’s favorite news source CNN (so you all know it is accurate) and ran across this report about the failure of the Super Committee to reach a deficit reduction agreement. As you can imagine the Democrats blame the Republicans and the Republicans blame the Democrats. So what else is new except for the fact that we the taxpayers take it in the backside again? Watch the video below and tell us what you think.
That report brought a tear to my eye. The poor guys raking in millions building military drones may take a 2-9% cut. Poor people will have the food literally taken off their plates just as they are poised to have lunch. The Border Patrol will be overrun by bad people and on and on. Even the stock market took a tumble as all the corporations’ dependant on government waste paced nervously awaiting the outcome of the Super Committee’s report.
Let’s take military spending for instance. Looking at this chart obtained over at Business Insider we see that we have doubled military spending in the last 6-7 years. Are they really trying to get us to believe that a 2 to 9 % cut will be the end of the world to the military? Similar numbers pertain to the budgets of nearly every agency in the Federal Government. Since when is a cut to a requested increase a cut in the budget? Spending won’t be decreased but rather the amount of the requested increase has only been decreased a trifle. Of course the news media perpetuates this sleight of hand by running headlines that claim budgets are being cut. That is pure hogwash!
Cut Spending! -- I for one am willing to take that chance.
