Radicals Don’t Compromise

[Democrats] failure to offer any spending cuts is a clear indication of their vision of the future: federal, state, and local governments that control every aspect of life and consume two thirds of the nation’s wealth.

It should be noted that Toomey’s proposal was merely an attempt to cut the rate of spending.  It would not have cut actual spending levels, which would have continued to increase by nearly a trillion dollars over the next decade.  But even this was too much for liberals in Congress.  What they are demanding is continued increases not just in the amount of spending, but in the baseline rate of spending as well.

The only logical conclusion is that Democrats did not want the supercommittee to succeed.

The liberal mob in Washington displays all the hallmarks of a party trying to hold onto power by defending the status quo.  That involves defending massive welfare programs, education subsidies to states, and green energy spending that has exploded in the last three years.  It also involves a refusal to address unsustainable entitlement spending.

The problem is that the status quo will soon lead America to the point of bankruptcy.  Having increased spending by nearly 40% in just three years, Democrats now want to increase it even more.
