No guts to cut!

Following is an example of what is wrong with Congress and the President. Nobody has the courage to do any actual cutting. They all -- Republicans, Democrats, Lisa, Begich, Young -- talk a good story on the campaign trail and then Bull S- - - the rest of the way. Tea Party elected are included. Nobody wants their ox gored.

All well and good going in but not so much backing out. Every offering is met with 100 reasons that particular cut can not be made.

"The President ordered the cabinet to cut a whopping $100 million from the $3.5 trillion federal budget!

I'm so impressed I have decided to do the same thing with my personal budget. I spend about $2000 a month on groceries, medicine, bills, etc, but it's time to get out the budget cutting axe.

I'm going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio -1/35,000. After doing the math, instead of spending $2,000 a month; I'm going to have to get by with $1999.94, a massive cut of 6 cents, but that's what sacrifice is all about! ~~~ John P. Taxpayer "

Just saying,

About: "Raised knowing that if you don't have the cash, you don't have the buy."
