It's Budget Tuesday

The White House Budget is released, today, just as it is every year at this time, a fact few Americans know, actually.

To avoid appearing like "tax and spend liberals" and to co-opt GOP-Tea lies that Dems are fiscally irresponsible, the WH has pivoted early to deficit reduction by making budget cuts.

This assumes that the U.S. economic recovery is on sure footing and can handle throwing more people out of work and concedes the rest of the ground on which the GOP-Tea fails its burden of proof.

Nevertheless, with both parties now glad-handing non-truths, we live in dangerous times.

[And, yes, it's Clinton all over again, in some respects. No one dares say what needs to be said: our economic failure & dip has an impact on our wherewithal to project military power. ]
