    It would seriously reduce what PP can do. Ironically, the one thing that would not be reduced is abortion services, since by law the federal funds they get cannot go to that.

    I have no expectations for anyone to voluntarily give up federal funding. They will have to be de-funded but it will need to be a managed de-fund to help the organization move those funds to private donations.

    I also have no idea where the $1.3 billion not spend over the $2 billion recieved over 6 years is.

    That did not stop the reality that people such as those, including my fifth great uncle and his son (working with the President and President Adams) would essentially develop such parties.

    The democrats stance is absolutely insane... we need to cut and we need to cut trillions over the next 10 years. This is simply not debatable, we will crash as a country if it does not happen; therefore regardless of any other politics the democrats are completely at fault for not taking a strong stance on cutting the spending.

    I'm still waiting on fixing the tax loopholes everyone knows is there. Until we take that step, we will be nowhere near fixing the budget.

    The key part is highlighted. Yes, we need to do something about our structural budget deficit. We need to have solutions for long-term issues like how to make social security solvent, how to control Medicare/Medicaid costs, how to reform and simplify our tax code, and how much defense spending we will need to cut. But that debate does not belong in the 2011 federal budget.

    that's correct; it belongs to 2012, and will inevitably be the Presidential debate.
