It's a start... a start of a process that will result in an actual balanced budget, likely some time after I die, because steps are FINALLY being taken to get spending under control.
We will be $15 trillion in debt at the start of the next fiscal year. In March, the federal government spent a mere EIGHT TIMES the revenue they took in.
And where is Ridgefield Barbie in all of this?
No where. She's become the "Congressional Ghost" on the subject.
When I listen to the talking heads, who are they interviewing?
Well, it ain't the Camas Manikin.
Actually, to date, this has been the local Empty Suit's only response:
Casey Bowman, spokesman for U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Camas, said the congresswoman would have no comment on the specifics of Ryan’s sweeping budget plan until she has a chance to study it.Of course, as a complete RINO, it's difficult for a fake conservative with proven SEIU and democrat ties to actually take a high profile conservative position. I get that.
“It’s clear we can’t keep spending money we don’t have, and she’s happy Chairman Ryan is taking our crushing debt crisis seriously,” Bowman said.
But someone around her needs to tell this little girl that play time is over... and if she and her colleagues don't act... and act soon... she's going to lose that pretty office and everything that goes with it.
Cowardice. For Ridgefield Barbie... it's what's for dinner.
