Washington (CNN) – The new Republican-led House of Representatives voted Thursday to cut its operating budget by 5% - a move meant to reflect the GOP's desire to reduce the size of the federal government.
The measure, which GOP aides claim will save $35 million, passed 410-13.
Save a nickel, but add over $1 trillion to our national debt. ($230 billion by repealing health reform and $800 to give tax cuts to the wealthy)
GREAT! And next year do the very same thing.
Now keep the ball rolling and turn that $35 million into $35 BILLION and that into $350 BILLION!!! 2011 is off to a great start. Way to go John!! And how much is he saving by not flying in special USAF planes like the former queen of the House?
Does this mean they have to bring their own coffee?
