MUST READ: Harry Reid's illusory $41 billion in budget cuts
By their very nature, budget debates are confusing. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is trying to use that confusion to his advantage, claiming the Senate has “already proposed $41 billion in cuts.” The Washington Post accurately points out that Reid “being disingenuous and not very truthful.”
The whole article is a MUST READ, be here is the key excerpt:
So what is Reid talking about when he says Democrats have already proposed $41 billion in cuts? He’s talking about the difference between what Obama proposed last year — and was never enacted — and 2010 spending. Or, to put it another way, he’s talking about cutting spending that never happened.
