Ahem. Specific Spending Cuts?

It has been nearly three months since the election that brought control back to the GOP in the House of Representatives. Out of power, the Republicans spent much of the past two years loudly advocating massive spending cuts and a balanced budget. Once back in power, their first act was to "jam a bill down throats of America" and repeal the Healthcare Act, thus raising the deficit $280B+. They did this despite the fact that three out of four Americans oppose full repeal of "Obamacare". Finally, they have yet to specify any specific spending cuts. What are they waiting for?

Geez, you are thinking, this seems awfully screwed up. Well, that is because it is. But why would you be surprised? These are the same people that cut taxes twice as we headed into two wars and engaged in a general "War on Terror". These are the folks that massively added to Medicare entitlement costs (Prescription Drug Plan) without providing a penny in revenue to pay for it. Our current national debt is a direct product of Republican policies over the past thirty years. And now they have the temerity to decry deficits and debt!?

Don't listen to what they say. Watch what they do. Then vote Democratic.
