ABC Relays Claims Obama & Dems Will ‘Protect’ GOP from ‘Less Than Responsible’ Budget Cuts
By Brad Wilmouth | February 13, 2011 | 01:02
On the February 12 World News Saturday, ABC correspondent David Kerley highlighted claims by Bob Greenstein of the left-leaning Center on Budget and Policy that the Democratic-controlled Senate and President Obama would block Tea Party-backed cuts from this year’s federal budget, thus protecting Republicans from their "less than responsible actions."

After Kerley began his piece by recounting that Tea Party Republicans in the House had pressured House Speaker John Boehner to support a plan cutting $100 billion in planned spending from the current fiscal year's budget, calling the cuts "broad and very deep," the ABC correspondent included a clip of Greenstein asserting that "they’re bigger than people think" without informing viewers of the liberal lean of his organization.

After a second clip of Greenstein in which the former Carter administration member contended that Republicans are "protected from the consequences of their own, I think, less than responsible actions here," Kerley continued: "Protected from the consequences, he says, because the Democratic Senate and the President will not go along."

The ABC correspondent then concluded his report by uncritically passing on President Obama’s plans to supposedly "freeze federal spending." Kerley: "Then the President gave us a little more indication today about what he plans in his budget. He wants to spend more on education and new economy jobs and pay for that with cuts of his own - which he says, David, will freeze federal spending for the next five years."

So the Dems and Pres Obassiah need to "Protect us from ourselves"....typical elitist assholes. They can take and shove it, and I hope that they follow Rand Paul's plan and cut 500 Billion just to say "FU" to the President and Dems.

Boehner is proposing a hundred billion in cuts this year. Not nearly enough. The govt needs to gut itself and, at the very minimum, go back to around 2000 spending levels - NOT adjusted for inflation. Kill a few agencies. I don't really give a damn how they reduce employment, whether via people quitting, retiring or just firing workers; it's all fine with me. With unemployment at almost historic numbers, a hundred thousand or so more added to the number is a drop in the bucket.

Actually - if the cut the retirement plans these bureaucrats get they could save billions right there.
