Too Much or Not Enough

Posted by olemike on 02/07/2011

I find it is quite interesting to read comments by leading Democrats as to the budget cuts proposed by Paul Ryan.  He is suggesting cuts of about $58 billion to non-defense discretionary spending and $16 billion in defense spending. 

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said it was “unworkable” and “even more draconian than we originally anticipated.”  Senator Schumer said some of the cuts were “extreme and go overboard.”   Meanwhile, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee criticized the plan for not going far enough, in the sense that it fell short of the GOP’s “Pledge” to cut at least $100 billion.

What I want to know is what they really believe.  Do they want no cuts or do they want more cuts.  They need to get off the political fence and say what they really believe.  Spend more or spend less?
