Recall that only Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard and cried t’was bare. Today millions see a $4 trillion bloated cupboard overflowing with political goodies to cut.
The link goes to this Washington Times piece, which states:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says Republican-led efforts to rein in government spending are pointless because there is nothing left to cut in the almost $4 trillion-a-year federal budget.
“The cupboard is bare. There’s no more cuts to make. It’s really important that people understand that,” Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat, said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
