    Spending-Cut Deal: Mr. Speaker, Vote This Swindle Down!
    By David Stockman Apr 13, 2011 Note Stockman was Ronald Reagan's Budget Director.

    The $39 billion spending-cut deal reached by Washington last Friday night would indeed be the biggest in history -- if they were giving out awards in the category for “flimflam & swindle." The package fairly oozes with cynicism, gimmicks and voodoo accounting...

    The giant swindle being perpetrated by Washington officialdom, then, boils down to the following pathetic truth: The US government is currently borrowing 43 cents on every dollar it spends, meaning that it is issuing about $6 billion of new Treasury debt every single business day. During the balance of FY 2011, this allegedly largest spending cut in history will not eliminate one day’s worth of new national debt!

    So welcome all you Tea Party newbies to the real world of appropriations committee slim and deception....

    Thanks for posting that....I think. You see, it's necessary to know what really happened with this deal, but it is depressing.

    Why do we vote? Nothing changes. It comes down to a choice.

    How would you like your plane to crash?

    Augering nose down into the ground and bursting into flames?(Democrats)

    Or gliding in without wheels or flaps and skittering across the tarmac and eventually bursting into flames?(Republicans)
