Good news and bad news about the Republican’s budget

By Tom Quiner


The House Republicans unveiled their budget for America.

The good news: they’re cutting spending by $32 Billion from March 5th through October 31st.

The good news: it’s the biggest one time cut in discretionary spending in history.

The bad news: in their Pledge to America, they promised to cut spending by $100 Billion.

I’m willing to cut them some slack. After all, Democrats refused to even offer up a budget last year to avoid political heat. And the Republican’s cuts take a slice out of a half year’s worth of budget, not a whole year.

It’s a start.

We need more, a lot more. Let us hope the Tea Party keeps the heat on.
