Because Republicans propose to exempt the Pentagon, veterans programs and homeland security from these cuts, liberal analysts said the reductions would decimate education funding, the National Park Service and other worthy programs.
“worthy programs” Says who? If they’re worthy then someone would be doing it for a profit. If someone isn’t then it’s either not worthy or the government prevents them by law. Either way the government shouldn’t be doing it.
Then there is “decimate”. Decimate means cut by 10%.
Either they don’t know what decimate means or they think a 10% budget cut is too horrific to imagine. Has anyone out there in the real world not had to cut the budget by at least 10% lately? It’s not that hard. There’s 10% of slack in any budget.
“Congress has never failed to increase the debt limit when necessary,” Treasury spokesman Steve Adamske said. “And we are confident Congress will act in 2011 to ensure that the full faith and credit of the United States is protected.”
What good is a debt limit that you keep raising? Might as well not have one. And how does going more into debt “ensure that the full faith and credit of the United States is protected” anyway?
What a load of crap.
