Obviously not. The Democrats and the administration continue to oppose just about any Republican led effort to reign in federal spending. Every aspect is considered essential and a threat to our continuing to function as a nation. The Washington Times reports today on the Department of Homeland Security’s assertion that proposals put forth will endanger the nation on a variety of fronts. Despite the fact that core services and activities will be “fully funded”. Earlier this week it was reported that many government programs duplicated services and the agencies in question served the same purpose. Also came the “discovery” the goverment could “operate more efficiently”. Wow! What a novel idea! I am so comforted by the visionaries we have running the show! The rest of us dumbasses could never make it without such reassuring “leadership” and “guidance”!
