Well the gloves have been thrown down by the GOP the next fight is over the debt and deficit spending. shocked shocked !!

reminded me of this exercise to balance hte budget from 2 years ago... might be time too break it out again !!

Budget Balancing Exercise

You'll find it's NOT that hard. But unfortunately in DC, politics and partisanship get in the way !!

Also keep in mind that this exercise is an "all or nothing" choice on many budget items... in reality, Congress could also cut expenses by partial funding in specific areas of many budget items. So they can be much more precise than in the exercise.

I want to see if the GOP is really serious about cutting or just want to destroy certain programs they disagree with. (course we already know the answer) I want to see their hypocrisy exposed... well re-exposed !! grin
