  • Tweet of the Week: Daily Kos Founder Disses Spending Freeze

    On Tuesday, President Obama announced his plan for a discretionary spending freeze, a plan he outlined in greater detail at the State of the Union. As we have outlined throughout the week, while a step in the right direction, this plan does little to provide the comprehensive reform of the federal budget that is so desperately needed.

    After the freeze was announced, Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas, sent the following tweet to his followers:

    @marcos: You don’t freeze spending, then spend. And if a program is “wasteful”, you eliminate it rather than freeze.

    It goes without saying that when even the Daily Kos fails to find merit in the President’s proposals, the Administration needs to step back and reevaluate its policies.

      The dems can not eleminate any program, as they feel these programs are essential to the election of each of them. We are tax payers and are being robbed blind due to many of these give away programs. The spending freeze is a joke.

      The members of the house and senate should first give up their raises.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
