Breakfast Scramble (Wednesday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Reich come up short,  from Robert Reich, Puffington Post [1]:

I hope the president decides he has to take a stand, and the sooner the better. Last December he caved in to Republican demands that the Bush tax cut be extended to wealthier Americans for two more years, at a cost of more than $60 billion. That was only the beginning — the equivalent of my cupcake.

Last night he gave away more than half the sandwich — $39 billion less than was budgeted for 2010, $79 billion less than he originally requested. Non-defense discretionary spending — basically, everything from roads and bridges to schools and innumerable programs for the poor — has been slashed.

I’d call Reich’s cuts a crap sandwich, but crap is tangible and real.   The money that Reich of whining about not being spent does not exists.  The national debt is over a trillion dollars. The nation is broke.   We can afford high speed rail lines that connect nothing to no where.

Rand on a Roll, I find it amusing that liberal pretend to be for choice, but consistently oppose free choice, except when choice is used a euphemism killing an unborn baby.  The junior senator from Kentucky continues to expose liberal hypocrisy, video:
