    Default Budget Deficits Do Matter

    When was the last time that a radical, Democrat Socialist ever called for budget cuts?

    Sorry no one responded quick enough to you Jarod.

    They call for cuts to the military all the time. When was the last time you called for cuts to entitlements or the military?

    Rand Paul held up funding for 1st responders of 9-11 because it wasn't PAYGO.

    He got a never ending raft of criticism for it

    I don’t know Jarod and the military is not an entitlement group, Snowflake.

    The military is the only thing standing between the barbarians and dumb snowflakes like you.

    You asked about the deficit. The biggest drivers of spending in this country are entitlements and the military. Don't ask the question you did if you don't want to hear the answer.

    You conflated the military with entitlements, Snowflake.

    I’ll ask any question at any time that I want.

    Yes they do but you can be damn certain that they would reassign the money in a flash to welfare programs.
    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    SMH. Not sure why i bother to respond. The biggest spending items of the federal government are entitlements and the military. Liberals have often called for spending cuts to the military. There's the answer to your question. Don't ask the question if you don't like the answer.

    Trust me, I'm not in any way saying they are fiscally responsible. But to the question of when have they called for budget cuts the answer would be the military.

    Spending cuts to the military are not cuts to entitlement spending.

    To conflate the two is intellectually dishonest.

    The radical Democrat Socialists want cuts to the military while illegals (non-citizens) have already cost 148 billion dollars, year to date, to legal American citizens per OAN and Homeland Security.

    You didn't say anything about entitlements. Your original post said "When was the last time that a radical, Democrat Socialist ever called for budget cuts?"

    Budget cuts don't just apply to entitlements. It is difficult to cut entitlements like Social Security and Medicare because there are a lot of seniors who get those benefits and they vote.
