    I'm crotchety because I want America to have what it wants? Really?

    ScoobyDoo just happened. I'm not sure how. I just used it to sign up for this sight and there it was.

    This is great, by the way.

    We shouldn't always get what we want. In 1798 the country wanted another war with England, but Pres. Adams kept the war hawks from attaining their final goal. It cost him a second term in office, but he did what really was best for the country at the time.

    Idiots during the 1950s wanted us to nuke the Soviets, but both Pres. Truman and Pres. Eisenhower beat back the cries of war. Truman even fired American hero Douglas MacArthur in order to avoid our national villainy.

    Suppress the urges of the masses and right thee ship when the masses are lost in the fog. We need more politicians willing to be statesmen, and not mere puppets of their constituencies.

    Can't disagree with this either.

    Only in these crazy hyperventilating times could reducing the rate of growth of something, having something continue to grow, yet merely grow more slowly than before, be excoriated as a draconian "cut" in spending.....

    If you are initially authorized to spend 100 million, and find out you are only getting 95 million, that is still a cut even if you only spent 94 million last year. People will lose their jobs, expected services won't be provided, and people like you will biatch about government being broken if it's something that directly affects you.

    Then you will turn around and vote for the people who will break the government.

    Budgets matter. And the cost of health care increases every minute. So, any cuts are cuts. Period.

    It was OK when the AHCA was only murdering the Poors. Now it's serious.

    “As we did with all 435 Members of the House of Representatives, AARP will also hold all 100 Senators accountable for their votes on this harmful health care bill. Our members care deeply about their health care and have told us repeatedly that they want to know where their elected officials stand. We strongly urge the Senate to reject this bill.”
    AARP is 4x as lethal a lobby as the NRA. Only about fifty percent of men have small dicks, but 100% of both sexes are planning on being old.

    Totally nonresponsive to the actual original post.

    If the forward-looking budget from 2017 to 2025 is projected to grow at 5% each year and the forward-looking budget is adjusted to grow at 3% per year, not a single dollar of the 2017 budget is changed. The 2025 budget will be substantially larger in dollar terms either way. There is no "cut" involved in this year's budget at all, nor is there a "cut" in next year's budget either. It grows in both situations.
