A $6 Billion Cut In 2012 –That’s It?
If this account is correct, Eric Cantor just told GOP Conference conservatives to sit down and shut up. Now the Freshmen are going to look craven as well as unprincipled.
$6 billion in total cuts to 2012 spending? Out of a budget of what, $2300 billion?
UPDATE: Actually $2300 billion is just revenue. We will spend at least $3500 billion in 2012, from which the House GOP proposes to cut only $6 billion.
No wonder the House GOP is revolting.
And we still don’t know which Members the Speaker would place on the supercommittee that could force a vote on massive tax hikes.
