We conservatives, which is NOT synonymous with Republicans wants the spending cuts promised every time Repubs cave on tax increases that the Dems always promise but have yet to deliver, ever.
If the Medicare Prescription plan was so bad (which it is) why do the Dems want to expand it?
Also, wars are waged, not funded, you do what needs to be done. The wars under Bush were kept off budget so that the costs can be tracked and not lost in the budget, which BTW the Senate has not passed in over 3 years, so technically, everything is off-budget right now. Off course this is done so gov't can be funded by continuing resolutions. By doing this they can just continue the stimulus each year
