Obama leading the Senate to the sacrifice of the sacred Cows….
Obama has been reported as approving a bipartisan committee on fiscal responsibility which is due to report to the Senate on 1st December. The Commission can be found at www.FiscalCommission.gov, should you enjoy a good laugh too.
The 10% off White House costs, the 15% reduction in the bill for Congress will find no great opposition.
But if Obama hopes to lead the Senate to sacrifice the needed $100 billion out of the Defence budget, or, horror of horrors, ask Americans to pay more tax on gas then we will see if Congress really wants to sacrifice its favourite sacred cows in order drive down big government or spread the pain.
I wouldn’t bet on it.
