Kristof tweeted that while reading over the plan, he felt “as the Romans must have felt in 456 A.D. as the barbarians conquered and ushered in the dark ages.

Thankfully, Twitter was there to let him know that in no way whatsoever are cuts to federal spending at all comparable to an impending Vandal horde.

It should also be noted that the Vandals actually sacked Rome in 455 AD, not 456.

Just sayin’…
