Many people are saying $61 billion is a drop in the bucket to the debt fo $14 trillion and we should concentrate on the budget for 2012. Congressman Mike Pence, a Republican from Indiana, on the Laura Ingraham show, pointed out a fact nobody is addressing.
Most of the $61 Billion the Republicans are asking to cut is from committees or councils that were created by the Stimulus Bill. The Democrats refuse to allow these new agencies or bureaucrats to go away when the Stimulus died. Congressman Pence points out if these agencies were to be defunded, instead of just a $61 Billion cut, The amount over 10 years would be $400 Billion. That is in fact, significant.
2012 is coming!!!!
