This video is 5 minutes of utter hilarity. Enjoy the smooth democrat tones of a schizophrenic legislator who believes that unfunding our soldiers is the better way to win a war.
As Denninger puts it:
Alan Grayson wants to give 90% of the money he would "save" through this move to "the people", thereby not actually withdrawing the deficit spending (which we should do), but instead shifting it.
$16 billion of "deficit reduction", so he claims. But he's not mentioning the $1.6 trillion in deficit that we have.
Cutting $160 billion wouldn't be all that bad of an idea - that would be 10% of the deficit, and might actually matter. Indeed, it would be what I'd call "a good start."
That's pissing into a hurricane.
Indeed. But then, don't most "democrats"?
