The republican establishment is certainly NOT serious about deep spending cuts. Even though that is precidely what this country and economy needs. If the republican leadership were truely concerned about spending they would not have worked to discredit Ron Paul in the primaries. He was the one true fiscal conservative in the bunch of candidates and if you don't see that you are fooling yourself. All the other guys, well thier plans for "cuts" would have hardly even made a dent.
