So Congress has done it’s constitutional duty and proposed a budget.  And, as politicians will do, they’ve totally slammed the people that brought them to the dance.

Remember the Tea Party rallies before the 2010 mid-term elections????  Signs like these were very much in evidence:

So what’s one of the biggest cost controls in the new Republican budget—–you guessed it:  Medicare vouchers and limits. But don’t take my word for this—read the proposal yourself at http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2011/04/06/us/politics/06budget-doc.html  Even the Economist, hardly a pawn of the left-wing media, believes the games over the budget and shutdown should stop: http://www.economist.com/node/18485975?story_id=18485975.
Now, people like Rand Paul may have a point when they say government should shrink.  But if Mr. Paul has toilet issues, it shouldn’t surprise anyone because he spews enough b.s. to jam the New York City sewage treatment plant.  Time for some real cost cutting—–if Congress forces a shut-down, then all of its members should get their pink slips on the way out of town.  No work, no pay—just like in real life.  And what if we cut 10% from the military budget—-wouldn’t hurt our troops but would save a lot more in this fiscal year than the cuts enacted so far as well as cutting the size of government………….Just throwing out the ideas.  They make no less sense than what our elected representatives have come up with………..
