    ABC News had an amusing but sad report last night about how three "no brainer" cuts -- subsidies for oil and ethanol and for a jet engine that the military doesn't want -- an easy $30 billion cut, is literally off the table for the GOP.

    In fairness, before the GOP proposes cuts to mainstream Democratic programs, like aid to the unemployed, education, arts, and the sick, the GOP can get some credibility by cutting its favorite programs, like subsidies for oil, agriculture, and military companies. If it takes that first step, then the American people will be more supportive of their broader cuts.

    Everyone must feel the pain of GOP budget cuts -- from the sick and unemployed TO the wealthy oil companies and military industrialists.

    Driving the move is a promise made in last fall's campaign to cut $100 billion from President Barack Obama's proposals. - Article

    So, Republicans DIDN'T do this, correct?

    The earlier GOP plan would have saved $35 billion. - Article

    Why people CONTINUE to support the Republican party...

    when the Republican party does not support the American people...

    and fails to fufill it's promises so much that it uses said promise often...

    is beyond me.
