Tell Congress to Stop Lying and Start Cutting
By James Wilson

Quote of the Day: "Somehow, we could ratchet up spending by hundreds of billions at the drop of a hat. Reducing spending by less than $100 billion becomes Armageddon." -- Arnold Kling

Copy or borrow from the letter I sent to Congress this morning:

You told us you were cutting the budget by $38.5 billion. You lied.

The CBO (Congressional Budget Office) says that your omnibus spending bill only cuts budgeted spending by $325 million. That's million, NOT billion.

But it gets worse. The CBO also says that spending actually INCREASES by $3.3 billion when you include so-called emergency spending.

I will be blunt. Please pay close attention. YOU NEED TO STOP LYING AND START CUTTING!

END LETTER
