What kind of trade-off do you have with 1.1 trillion dollar budget, and 17 trillion dollar debt?

This is flat out poor annual budgeting.

How can anyone hold students accountable for math test scores when our leaders can't balance a check book?

Worf: I've read your words for months. I love em! I'm about ready to take a hiatus from commenting at all, but I believe that there are millions and millions of liberty loving voices seeking for answers through words such as yours! As long as you have time, keep the fires burning! It is awesome!

I too enjoy Worf's comments as they can usually supply a chuckle and draw some snappy, liberal responses. In this budget proposal, domestic discretionary spending is less than it was in George Bush's final year in office. As the Romney recovery takes hold if we could go back to the tax rates under Clinton we could get our country back into the black.

I have to disagree with FT. There is no such thing as "domestic discretionary" spending. All government spending is discretionary even though it is not labeled as such.
