President Begins to Trim Budget

The president announced today that he plans to cut $17 billion out of the budget.  It's great to see the president living up to his promise of scouring the budget "line by line" to make cuts.  It's a start, but it is only a tiny fraction of the $3.4 trillion budget.  In fact, the cuts amount to one half of one percent of planned spending.  The White House says they are not done yet though, so hopefully we will see some more cuts soon.

Key Vote No: Obama-Pelosi-Reid Budget

I used the word “incorrect” in the title because I’m feeling momentarily generous. A more precise word would probably have been “lied". Today’s news about deficits is, not surprisingly, much worse than the already-bad picture painted for us by the Obama administration and their ridiculously rosy economic forecasts. An AP article entitled “$1 trillion deficits seen for next 10 years” explains that:

National Debt Roars Past $9 Trillion

BY

The news should have made banner headlines, but few paid attention as the U.S. national debt passed the $9 trillion mark this week. I suppose the lack of interest is understandable, since the citizens who will be stuck paying this bill are mostly in grade school. The sad thing: the national debt was "only" $5.735 trillion when George W. Bush took office in January 2001. We're on pace for the national debt to increase by more than 50% during his 8 year tenure as chief executive.
