Cato Institute on ‘underwhelming’ spending cuts [VIDEO]

As lawmakers work to cut $2 trillion in federal spending, a new video from the Cato Institute puts that number in perspective.

The cuts are not really not cuts at all, rather slight reductions in proposed spending increases, the video says.

    “Thus we have men in high places who are “soulless” and beyond the reach of normal reasoning process. We speak Truth unto them as to what the consequences are of continuing this insane push and it does not penetrate, for the focus is only intensified…I tell you that there are replacement ones for your top leaders—and hundreds of “not so top” personages…EVERY FUNCTIONING PERSON OF IMPORTANCE TO THE EVOLVEMENT INTO ONE WORLD ORDER IS A REPLICA.”

    The entire congress and current administration need to be run out of spin city east on a rail. No politico wishes to cut spending or reduce the national debt. They will not go against special interest groups. They only want to flim flam the voter to secure their continued parasitic existence on the taxpayer’s dime.

    Why aren’t they cutting duplication, waste and corruption, foreign aid, downsizing agencies, etc?

    The repugnuts under Boehner leadership will cave to the dims. It seems to be in their DNA or it’s just that congress is nothing more than eunuchs or a bunch of wieners – all talk and no substance(That’s PC for full of BS).

    Its about time someone got it right. You can’t cut spending by reducing the amount you were going to spend. Both Democrats and Republicans know this and its time they made real cuts

      Same stuff they do with “reducing the deficit.” Let’s reign this monster in before it eats us all.

    The same smoke and mirrors I’ve been talking about….

    2 – 4 trillion dollars over 10 years isn’t going to do a damn thing, when we are running a 1.5 trillion dollar deficit per year.

    CATO is right on the mark.

    Bye Bye American Pie….
