No matter what Congressional Conservatives propose on budget cuts, it will continue to be portrayed by the Progressives/Socialists (media, think tanks, Intelligentsia, unions, etc..) as an attack on Americans. However, there are two groups that will always fights any budget cuts: The Progressives/Socialists and the big government statists, which many times seem to be one in the same.
The Progressives/Socialists want government to have full control of all commerce with government providing all jobs. Therefore government must perpetually grow. So they portray any cuts as an assault on the usual: children, environment, poor people, minorities, American Dream, ad nauseam. Of course, the other problem with trying to effect budget cuts is that everybody claims they want to initiate fiscal responsibility as long as their slice of pie is left alone. At this rate, our Federal Government will have to declare bankruptcy in order for any of these statists to embrace fiscal sanity.
Top that off with the daily assault by the socialist mainstream media (MSM), on anything opposing an onerous, overreaching, and gargantuan Federal Government, that the sheeple of America will happily lap up. At that rate, we will never achieve a limited and affordable government. The only viable solutions proposed by these clowns is to raise taxes on all Americans.
