If there are deep cuts, it will be directly attributable to the Republicans
themselves who have been playing contrived games on the budget, mostly to
protect the special benefits conferred on the rich and powerful. Point a finger
at yourselves, GOP.
So long Newt, you could have done it and now you are done. Amnesty isn't going
to fly and what you are proposing is nothing less than amnesty lite and a
rewards program for illegals that pays off for those who break the law longer
than others,, ridiculous! You just lost about 10 people who can vote in an
effort to pander to one who can't. Stupid move. I can hear the document mills
churning already printing out 12 million phony certificates of "proof"
that they have all been here for 25 years. You are supposed to be a
"smart" guy, apparently you weren't smart enough to learn from Rick
Perry on immigration. In spite of what the DN and other liberal media try to
tell you, the vast majority of people in this country aren't going for anything
that remotely sounds like amnesty. Go write some new books.

Of course they don't want to cut defense spending, that is the GOP cash cow.Fact: The Defense Department budget has DOUBLED since 2001.Fact:
America spends more on defense than China, Russia, the UK, France and Germany
COMBINED.Everyone in America is having to make do with less... it's
time our military shared that burden too.
