Comment: This Republican representative

(See in situ)


This Republican representative

is starting to get it. A couple important points he made:

This is a very bad situation. The bottom line is there is 640 billion dollars in NEW revenue with only 15 billion dollars in CUTS, and at the end of the day we're looking at 330 billion dollars in NEW spending. We're going the wrong direction ... When the president said he was looking for 2 or even 3 dollars in CUTS for every dollar in revenue, that isn't the case and we're actually going the wrong direction.

This will be our 5th year of trillion dollar deficits and we can't suspend the laws of mathematics here. We've got to stop doing business this way in Washington D.C. where we're going to end up spending more, and adding to the deficit more and somehow calling it a victory.
