Title: democrats vote against spending cuts
Post by: y04185 on January 07, 2011, 08:54:57 AM
typical of democrats to spend, spend, spend.  when will they learn. 

every republican voted to cut congressional spending by five percent.  too bad democrats only want to spend other peoples money.

read the names of the democratic congressmen who don't get it here. (http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2011/roll008.xml)

How will that affect the deficit??  this more "symbolic" BS.  When both parties start cutting social security, mediciare and defense(REAL SPENDING CUTS) holla. Anything else is nothing but a dog and pony show.

This is certainly a positive start. If they are not willing to cut in their own offices then can you expect them to cut in other areas?

If we don't deal with Social security, defense and medicare, anything else is really no start at all.  Same old waste, fraud and abuse tale.

That is my point--85% of the budget is social security, defense and medicare.  Cut anything else and we are just bull#######.  Symbolic yes,  reduce the deficit no.
