Tina Korbe of The Heritage Foundation, my employer, interviewed House Freshman on spending cuts. Korbe interviewed Representatives Mike Kelly (R-PA), Renee Ellmers (R-NC), Allen West (R-FL), Chip Cravaack (R-MN), Steve Southerland (R-FL) and James Lankford (R-OK). West declares in the video that “it takes 5 miles to turn an aircraft carrier and if we don’t start now, we will never get this ship, the U.S.S. America, righted so that we can launch into a new future.” Agreed.
The time to start cutting is this week on the Continuing Resolution (CR) while the House has an opportunity to send a bill to the Senate with at least $100 billion in cuts. Today is a big day in the House and we shall see how debate proceeds on the hundreds of amendments to the CR.
Korbe writes over at The Foundry that a hundred billion is a great start.
Glenn Beck and his friends had some fun during Friday’s edition of “The Glenn Beck Program” radio show. Using different flavors of crushed cheetos, they tried to replicate Donald Trump’s repulsive orange hue.
