No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

And the expected Democrat PREACTION to Ryan’s budget cuts comes in

ABC News reports that the Senate Democrats, specifically a staffer for Senate Appropriations Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education subcommittee chair Tom Harkin (D-IA), arranged for a 1/24 rally of lobbyists and interest groups to call for even more federal tax dollars to be spent on things the federal government has no business spending mone…er, labor, health and human services, and education (wait a minute; I was on the right track). The staffer even misapproprated a Reaganomics quote by saying a rising tide raises all boats. Point of order – that’s a rising tide in the private sector; one focused on raising the public sector tide necessarily swamps the private sector and ultimately sinks all boats.

A side note; thanks in no small part to No Child Left Behind, that particular item on the budget trails only defense in discretionary federal spending.
