Marxist/Progressives Schumer (N.Y.) and Bernie Sanders (Vt.) accused Republicans of releasing a "fairytale" budget, saying the math doesn't add up.
"They can't agree on what gimmicks and how much sleight of hand to use, though they use plenty of it," Schumer told reporters, suggesting Republicans are divided on their budget. "That makes this a fairytale budget."
Schumer and Sanders said Marxist/Progressive amendments to the Republican budget would focus on boosting infrastructure, making college more affordable, moving toward equal pay and blocking cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
What we have all come to learn is that the budgeting process in Washington is a meaningless exercise. Much of the budget is out of the desired control of the politicians no matter which party. The arguments go on and on and yet taxes keep increasing along with the debt. These people try to make projections and budgets based on a 10 year basis using meaningless assumptions and then proclaim how they know how to bring the budget into balance.
The American people must come to the realization that these fools are destroying our country playing their political games. None of them have the courage to insist we use zero based budgeting. None of them have the courage to say it is this year we will bite the bullet and balance the budget. None of them have the courage to be totally honest with the American people and admit they have given up control of the budget and do not have the courage or the political will to reclaim that control.
In the meantime Americans have come to believe that a support system is the American way. In the meantime Americans have come to believe that doles from the government are constitutional rights. Our founders based this country on the premise that all individuals would be responsible for themselves. They believed that in America, a safety net is provided neighbor to neighbor and not from the government. If we expect our free nation to exist, we will have to adopt those true American ways because that is the only way a free society can flourish.
