…Because labels are a poor substitute for thinking

Budget cuts.

Posted by Bill Nance on November 25, 2008

From MSNBC:

WASHINGTON – President-elect Barack Obama named Peter Orszag as his budget director on Tuesday and said his job will be to conduct a thorough review of federal spending programs, “eliminating those programs we don’t need and insisting that those we do need operate in a cost-effective way.”

With the economy in crisis, Obama said, “Budget reform is not an option. It’s a necessity.”

The GOP has been spreading the lie since the days of Reagan that they are the party of fiscal responsibility, even though every time a Republican has been president since the days of Nixon, government spending has sky-rocketed. Funny how some people cling to myths in the face of all facts.
