President Trump has released his fiscal 2018 budget proposal and it seems the world may end because of it – maybe as early as Memorial Day.
Republicans and Democrats couldn’t wait to get to the nearest microphone or reporter to wail about draconian budget cuts to this or that department. Both Parties are nauseatingly hyperbolic. This we expect from the socialist Dems, but some of the Republicans are equally insane.
The Huffington Post reports of Lindsey Graham going off the deep end over proposed cuts to the State Department.
“Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Tuesday that if ‘fully implemented,’ President Donald Trump’s proposed cuts to State Department funding would lead to ‘a lot of Benghazi situations,’ writes the HuffPo. Graham also said the U.S. can’t win wars ‘with hard power alone,’ referring to an approach focused on the heavy use of military force.”
What an idiot. How else do you win wars you weenie? Through diplomacy? The State Department could be dissolved tomorrow and we’d all be the better for it. They are useless.
Now I would expect this type of aggrandizement from the Democrats, for whom there will never be enough cash, no matter how much is offered up. But the Republicans are supposed to be different – are they not? Evidently not. When it comes right down to it, there is really only one difference between Republican and Democrat budgets, and that’s the size of the taxpayer soaking.
