Isn’t it funny 7 May, 2009

Posted by David Anderson in Budget, federal, President Obama.

Proposals to Cut 18 billion in earmarks was deemed as no big deal by the President, but cutting 17 billion now is. I am I the only one seeing the humor?

Unfortunately the cuts are mostly from defense including killing jobs to build the F-22. Most of the rest of the cuts are the ones the Congress rejected under the Bush Administration. Meanwhile the administration has proposed skyrocketing the deficit by hundreds of billions a year and trillions over the next 10 years. I hope this is only a start and not a smiley face cynical joke on the taxpayer.
