They Still Haven’t Learned
As one would expect, the GOP’s new official budget proposal to “stop the reckless spending binge” doesn’t even attempt to do anything of the sort, offering instead little more than time-honored vacuous platitudes about eliminating unspecified government waste. I like this bit in particular, since it sums up what I’ve been pushing for all these months and years:
In noting the Paul-Frank plan on defense spending, Lochhead’s story also suggests that the real solutions are likely to come from unlikely alliances that reach across party lines. Certainly both parties got us into the mess and it’s likely that both will need to get us out on some level.
My emphasis. And the key word in that phrase is “unlikely.”
