Jeff Flake, Cynthia Lummis Vote "No" On Republican Appropriations Bill, Insisting on Full $100 Billion in Promised Cuts

Nice. I wish these two weren't the dissenters but the majority, but at least we have them.

An earlier report said that the GOP proposed to merely trim $32 billion from the budget, down even from their $100 billion is $60 billion pro rata for the rest of this year trial balloon. However, the new proposal is near $60 billion...

The proposal will cut about $58 billion in non-defense spending compared to President Obama’s 2011 budget request.

But note that is cut from Obama's 2011 budget request, which is of course a very high and bloated request. When we were talking about cuts, I assumed (and the GOP allowed us to imagine) we were talking about cuts from current spending, not cuts from current spending + Obama's new spending requests. The latter is like a store marking up a dress from $100 to $150 so they can put it on sale for $75 the next week and claim "50% off!"

Not enough. It may be time for a Malkin-led* effort to burn up the phone lines at Appropriations and in the general leadership.

* Not to put it on her, but she seems to get results and get the whole dextrosphere involved.

If anyone has the phone numbers and email addresses for these scoundrels, please pass it to me. I have the list of names but not their contact info.
