    $250BB isn't chickenfeed. But it IS $250BB after a massive expansion of spending, much larger than $250BB. It's certainly better than nothing. But there's still a long, long way to go.

    It does concede the ground to those of us which to curtail spending, though. Now, it's about if, but how much. More, please. Much more.

    Yup..... we're going to freeze Government spending. Except,

    National security issues,

    Social Security,

    Medicare,

    Medicaid,

    Foreign affairs,

    Healthcare,

    Stimulus,

    Job creation.

    Yup, I really mean it!... He's all about Fiscal Responsibility.

    I wouldn't say "concede". More like "concede a minor battle, but not the war."

    In terms of spending decreases, it's like we just took one step forward after sliding six steps back.
