According to the CATO institute the proposed $2 trillion dollar spending cuts propsed actually equates to a spending increase of 1.8 trillion dollars. Government lies. Unless unconstitutional programs and duplicate agencies are actually eliminated will there be any REAL long-term savings. Otherwise it is all smoke and mirrors, an attempt to fool the American people into believing that these fools in congress actually CUT anything. Do not allow your congressman or woman to lie to you. Insist that they actually cut government programs and agencies and eliminate budgets and funding for duplicates and unconstitutional programs. Insist that they eliminate employees and whole agencies. We can not longer afford the status quo.
