Just caught this while reading another post on the blog Conservatives4Palin; it speaks to do things our mainstream media has failed to explore (well, on the former, they are beginning to address said failure), Barack Obama’s rhetoric and Sarah Palin’s record.
Even now, after having presided over massive increases in the federal deficits, the Democrat still decries out-of-control federal spending. During the campaign, he had promised us a “net spending cut”, matching an increase in one program with a cut in another. Well, Mrs. Palin could teach him a thing or two about spending cuts. Between 2007 (the last state budget signed by her predecessor Frank Murkowski) and 2010 ( the last budget she signed as Governor), she cut spending by “whopping 9.5% or $1,127,400,000”
That is, she didn’t just cut spending in inflation-adjusted dollars, she cut it in real dollars. With record deficits, we could use some fiscal discipline like that in our nation’s capital.
