So the President has proposed a $15B cut, in the name of being "fiscally responsible." Color me unimpressed.
The CBO says that the deficit next year will be $1.35T, or about 1000 times more than these cuts. That's not the budget, that's the deficit. So "fiscally responsibility" means cutting the deficit by 0.1%. In a couple weeks, we're heading from Boston to Myrtle Beach. To put the cuts in perspective, 0.1% of the trip doesn't even get me out of town.
Let me just say that the President is an idiot. I come to this conclusion because he clearly thinks that I'm dumb enough to think that this is fiscal responsibility.
