Cut Money for Cops, Cancer, Students and Firefighters

Here Come the Republicans!

Oct. 1 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. House Republicans’ pledge to cut $100 billion from the federal budget next year would slash spending for education, cancer research and aid to local police and firefighters.

A 21 percent cut in Pell Grants would take almost $5 billion from student tuition.

A 21 percent cut across the board would take about $15 billion from education.

A 21 percent cut at the National Institutes of Health would take about $6 billion from health research.

A 21 percent cut would take $400 million from police.

I could go on, but it makes me cry, and you don't want a sobbing blogger. Especially when letting the tax cuts for those making over a quarter million bucks a year expire would save all that and have about the same impact as those cruel cuts on the budget.

You know I don't think the Democrats are always right, but I agree with their statement about all this cutting into the hearts of our citizens: “It will have a serious impact on real people, but it won’t have a serious impact on reducing the deficit.”

And dats de troot.
