You know our Socialist/Communist poster will NEVER let us cut programs in order to bring down the deficit. 

The rule should be, "Do we need it? If not, then bleed it."

The National Endowment for the Arts gets $148 million annually. Eliminate that, and that's $148 million you save every year.

Public Broadcasting gets $445 million annually. Eliminate that, and that's $445 million you save every year.

There is a lot of wasteful spending that can be either reduced or eliminated entirely.

“You can’t increase defense spending, which the president proposes, cut taxes, which the president proposes, and leave entitlements untouched, which the president has proposed, and think you are going to have a balanced budget,” Cole said.

No sh*t?

The only people I know who ever said anything approaching that are these "Laffer Curve" wackos, and they usually don't advocate spending more as part of their Kool-Aid.


I'm not sure you understood my statement.  The Laffer Curve folks are the ones that say you CAN reduce the deficit while cutting taxes and increasing spending.  What I was pointing out to FC was that he often disagrees and says that you can't.  Yet, Obama cut taxes and raised spending, and the deficit decreased.

I don't believe Obama campaigned on fiscal prudence or balancing the budget, particularly in the aftermath of the Bush recession.  But he sure did bring those Bush deficits down!


That's a lie. Such is not unusual for you.
