    Ok....Santy said during the debate last night and on several other occassions he's going to cut 5 trillion dollars from the federal budget in 5 years.

    The Federal budget in 2012 was $3.7 trillion.

    Why isn't anyone calling this guy out on this baloney?


    from his own website:
    Proposals

    Commit to cut $5 trillion of federal spending within 5 years

    in other news Ron Paul reports that Iran is not developing nukes.

    I actually enjoyed it very much last night when Romney called out Santorum for actively campaigning for and supporting Sen. Arlen Specter.

    You know... the RINO conservative who became a Democrat and cast the deciding vote for Obama care.

    So the fact that this guy makes you so hot in the loins is probably why you don't care that you can't cut 5 trillion from 3.7.

    He is probably also talking about the debt Paulywog.

    Probably? That's not what he said. Next you'll tell me he's going to give me a Pony.

    Yeah. These guys are forever talking about 5 year plans, 10 year plans, over the next decade, you name it. I wish they wouldn't, but there's no stopping them. CBO committee does it, too.

    Didn't hear much about the 10 year cost of the payroll tax cut, though

    On a sideways note, George Will posted a column pointing out that neither Romney nor Santorum look all that great for winning in November (sigh).

    He's going to cut the budget by 5 trillion within 5 years.

    He'll cut 1 trillion a year from the budget for 5 years.

    Therefore he's cut 5 trillion within 5 years.

    See how easy that was.

    Every politician says basically the same thing. The problem is that their timeline always seems to start in the middle of their hopefully second term or 10 years out.
    Notice he did not say when he would start the cutting and I'd like to know how since the President does not have a line item veto and it is the House and Senate responsible for sending the budget to the President.

    I don't see the Quaker Statist having the cajones to shut down the Federal government to get what he wants if the House or Senate are not solidly Republican.
