I can hear the squealing from here.
I see "NotLindsey" is still peddling that Heritage foundation snake oil that he was touting last year about this time as "SLindsey". Just a coincidence, I'm sure. Observerofu (aka "NotLindsey") has sworn on a Bible that he's not SLindsey.
Do a search on Veterans Disability Program to see how that turned out (I'm never linking to another Citizen article again, because linking to the Citizen lands you in "Spam Jail Hell").
Bottom line: the Heritage foundation has all these "easy" cuts to federal programs, $48 billion of them come from discontinuing such "niceties" as VA Home loans, the GI Bill (education) and Veterans Disability payments.
but, but, but you can't cut my program...
and the educated, elected officials who are our leaders on the Special Committee felt that they were to "look for an economic solution to our deficit before the election"! Before the election!! That is what is wrong with Washington! The task is to find a solution to our financial crisis - so we don't go under!! Clear Congress of the empty suits - especially those who feel a commitment to 'party' supersedes a commitment to the fiscal health of our country!
