Betrayed again

When the House Budget Committee announced it’s proposal to cut only $32 billion from federal spending for the rest of the year (instead of the $100 billion promised), I understood how Charley Brown felt when Lucy pulled the football away for the umpteenth time.

The Budget Committee is supposed to be the home of the hard-liners, led by Paul Ryan, the GOP’s last best hope to persuade a skeptical Tea Party that the Beltway Republicans really have changed from their 2006 edition. If this is all the Budget Committee can summon up after three months of post-election labor, then the prospect of real spending reform is dim.
