No Fat Left to cut

from - Buck

House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said yesterday that Republicans have done so well in cutting spending that he declared an "ongoing victory," and said there is simply no fat left to cut in the federal budget.

After reading this one I had to double check and be sure it did not come from The Onion.

My God. Delay is delusional.

But I guess that goes without saying.

Definitely dilusional.

Just go back to last highway spending bill and scrap every project that doesn't have a thing to do with transportation or any new road building in Alaska.

Or perhaps the Corporation for Public Broadcasting could start paying its own way instead of you and I paying for it in the form of taxes.

Or perhaps instead of calling it a "cut" if the line item doesn't get as big an increase as was expected / hoped for you could call it a cut when the actual amount of money spent year over year goes DOWN.

Or perhaps ... give me a effn break "no fat left to cut". I don't think President Bush has vetoed one spending bill his entire time in office. The problem is that our elected representatives don't have any balls to what is right vs. what is politically expedient.

I read yesterday where Rush Limbaugh was claiming the statement of Delay to be a pure stroke of genius. He said Delay was challenging the "Democrats" to find fat to cut out of the budget.

"Republicans", you see, are not responsible for any government fat.

Sometimes I wonder how it is that I hate government so much but spend so much of my time totally immersed in it.
