Republicans Boldly Recommend a Few Drops in the Bucket

Some of the more conservative members of the new GOP-controlled Congress are pushing for $100 billion in budget cuts. Sounds like a lot, doesn't it? Except that this year's deficit is now estimated by the White House to be a staggering $1.65 trillion.
Let's hope Mike Pence et al. stand firm. That way we'll only sink $1.55 trillion deeper into debt over the next year. Who knows, we might last another four or five years before the economy completely collapses under the weight of our obese government.
