...or so our government seems to be attempting. It's a pity that all the bullshit they've preached about cutting taxes and entitlements is just that: Bullshit. What's going to happen is a bunch of fairly worthy programs are going to get the fuck cut out of them, some not-so-worthy programs will get the same treatment, and complete bullshit programs are going to remain going stronger than ever.
If you look too closely, you'll see the bullshit programs are those that are closest linked to the congresscritter of a given state in most cases. They'll do some stuff to make most of the voting public think they're trying to do what's right, but in the end they're just lining their own pockets.
Anyone who thinks different is pretty much deluding themselves at this point.
