That $100 billion the Republicans want to slash from the budget?

It’s chump change. The federal budget is $3.4 trillion. Jumping up and down like an angry orangutan and demanding cuts of $100 billion is merely political theater and posturing and will accomplish nothing of substance.

    Useless posturing! They know it

      And they just realized the fiscal year is half over so maybe it’ll just be $30 billion. Heh.

    When I read that Gates had proposed a 78 billion dollar reduction over 5 years, knee-jerk response was “chump change.” Then the chilling further reflection that $78 billion is chump change to the MIC (Military-Industrial Complex).

    Also, I doubt whether Gates, or anyone else involved, truly believes that such a reduction would take place. It’s posturing to show that MIC is willing to be a team player (<- cynical humor).
