Union funded Rep. Hoyer whines about miniscule cuts

Hoyer is one of the all time highest recipients of union contributions. He told a CNSNews reporter that the $100 billion in proposed cuts is a “meat axe approach” and “reckless”.

Who are they trying to kid? With a tsunami of debt headed our way, the GOP wants to take a bucket of water out of the ocean and the Democrats argue that will ruin the ocean. To put this in perspective, $61 billion is 1.6% of one year spending.

Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), the House Democratic whip, on Tuesday criticized Republicans for proposed budget cuts that he called “reckless.”

CNSNews.com asked Hoyer, after his speech before the National Association of Development Organizations, if he would support the $100 billion in cuts that House Republicans are proposing.

“I voted against H.R.1,” he told CNSNews.com, referring to the full-year appropriations bill. “I thought it was a simply a meat-axe approach without any consideration of priorities. Nothing was put in priority. No hearings. No analysis.”

He continued: “The way to do it is in a considered way, understanding the consequences of the cuts.”
