Reid’s trillion dollar gimmick
Harry “the only compromise is mine” Reid’s so-called budget cuts are based on the false assumption that we would keep spending the same amount on operations in Afghanistan and Iraq for ten more years even though President Obama has already started to withdraw our troops.
That’s right, the Reid plan is based on cutting spending that was not requested and will not be spent.
Congressman Paul Ryan explains this Democrat smoke and mirror budget gimmick:
Remember after the Obamacrats increased spending by 29%, it has now been It’s 822 days since the do nothing Senate Democrats last passed a budget.
The Senate Democrats refused to allow an up or down vote on the House-passed the Cut, Cap and Balance Act of 2011. The Obamacrats also refused to allow an up or down vote on a second House-passed bill that would raise the debt ceiling — the Budget Control Act of 2011.
Do the Democrats really fear losing reelection that much?
