While we here in Los Angeles are focused on the downpour and our news media on the attacks on Libya, we still need bear in mind that the current divided Congress has yet to finish the work the 111th (i.e., the Pelosi-Reid Congress) left undone. They still haven’t passed a 2012 budget.
You see, the Democratic Senate has rejected the budget the Republican House has passed.
As we think about matters budgetary, a thought occurs.
Recall how many Democrats (and their allies in the media and in the blogosphere) criticized the immediate past president for his failure to hold the line on spending. But, wouldn’t these folks have cried bloody murder had that good man tried to make the type of cuts passed by the Republican House. I mean, heck, the Washington Post characterized “the $6 billion cut in the most recent continuing resolution as ‘slashing’ the federal budget“.
Wonder what kind of cuts these folks proposed.
