Cartoon by William Warren
When posed with the very real necessity of cutting the budget, our legislators only cut proposed increases. Their ideology is “halfway is good enough”. But it is not and we are getting tired of it.
Look. The Democrats are not the only one’s responsible for the massive debt that we are in. We have had just as many big government Republicans posing as Conservatives. The Tea Party has ushered in a new face to the GOP, starting with the 2010 elections.
But the Democrats have not proposed a budget in over 1000 days in the Senate. Despite the fact that the US credit rating was downgraded, our federal budget deficit has gone to over $16 trillion.
