Even Leftists Won’t Defend Obama’s Make-Believe $4 Trillion “Grand Bargain” Budget Plan

The only true way to cut federal spending is to re-adopt zero based budgets. That is, all budgets are set to zero, and the departments would have to point out the individual lines of spending and justify each one. Currently we adopt the figures from last year, and add a percentage increase, and then start talking.

100% true. Add one more point. Make them include the portion of the constitution that allows the federal government to spend money or take action on the budget items along with ALL bills.

You have to give President Obama credit for chutzpah. He pushed through a faux stimulus in his first year and Obamacare in his second year, both of which significantly increased the burden of government spending.

In the past two years, he’s basically punted, proposing budgets that are so laughably unserious that they received zero votes in both the House and Senate. Including zero votes from Democrats.

But now he wants us to...
