Congress' Spending Cut Is a Horse Laugh

That $6 Billion the Congress cut from the federal budget last week? On that very day, the U.S. Treasury Department admits that the national debt jumped by $72 billion. On that very day!

Yet these lawmakers, especially the Republicans whose constituencies are expecting them to get serious about spending cuts, are acting like they did something quite significant.


Get serious about bringing this economy into some sane sense of balance. Or get out of the way.
