The GOP also wants to keep taxpayers’ dollars out of the hands of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the pockets of the administration’s unconfirmed “czars” and the campaign accounts of presidential candidates.

Republicans are also trying to keep taxpayers’ money from being used to implement ObamaCare, which has been found unconstitutional by a federal judge who told the administration it must shut down the program.

Apparently anyone who thinks they have a legitimate cause deserves to be funded by Washington’s coercive tax collection process — and has reason to grouse about it when a car is uncoupled from the long gravy train.

Frankly, there are no reckless cuts in a budget as swollen as that of the U.S. government. Cutting a mere $61 billion is neither draconian nor irresponsible. It is nothing more than a modest start.
