I don't mind the attempts at extreme spending cuts, I really don't. If you are serious about cutting the deficit, you will need to make serious cuts. But why does every single proposal have to come with some tax giveaway to the Rashard Lewis's of the world? I mean, he is getting $22MM a year to do basically nothing -- does he really need another tax break? Is he really going to create more jobs when we cut his taxes by 5% so he takes home another million next year when he grosses over $24MM?
Can the GOP just put up SOME reasonable budget that says "We need to raise taxes and cut spending" -- if not, why do we insist on pretending that we care about the debt or the deficit? We don't. We care about the part of the deficit that is caused by poor people and elderly people. We care nothing about the part of the deficit that is caused by the undertaxation of the wealthy or the payment to the defense industry.
