Real Sacrifice vs. Tiger Blood

The President’s budget states that FY11 outlays (discretionary + mandatory) will be $3.819 Trillion Dollars.

H.R. 1, the GOP alternative, reduces discretionary spending in FY11 by $110 Billion Dollars.

All the fear mongering is just that… What’s on the chopping block constitutes approximately 0.0288% of the entire federal budget…so much for major sacrifices …does this really compare with the sacrifice of the boys at Pointe-du-Hoc?

Is America serious about its future? Are we Americans—the people who saved the world from Totalitarianism —or are we all a bunch of spoiled whiners that deserve what we have coming?

Bah… Don’t worry about it… what was @charliesheen latest tweet?

    Excellent point. If this tiny FRACTION of a budget cut makes the Dems scream, why would anyone think they’re serious about making any real cuts.

  2. Great analogy here, RottDawg.

    This is just a spit into the ocean and it gives lie to the assertion by Obama and the Dems that they’re moving down the path toward fiscal responsibility.

    Unfortunately, it also gives lie to the assertion that some of the Elitist Republicans in the GOP leadership are serious about it either.
