Surprise: the horrendous ‘automatic cuts’ barely scratch the surface of the debt

Written By: Bob - Nov• 21•11

We should be used to the spectacle¬†of it all by now; the Democrats and Republicans get together to offer us what they both portray as “extreme” measures of one sort or another should either party win the debate over a heavily-hyped issue, so that we expect and accept “deadlock” that only perpetuates the status quo and offers no change at all.

    We all knew that the Democrats in the Senate (and House) intended to make cuts in defense before this summer’s debt morass. So now there are cuts in place .. some that Democrats want and some that Republicans wanted and a President who says he will veto any changes. We also know that this isn’t enough.
    I say mark your calendar. Embrace Obama’s horror. The first cuts are on the way. Both sides have embraced them, backed up by a Presidential veto. Now, let’s see who blinks first.
