GOP & cuts, then & now

Now, the Republicans want spending cuts. What happened to spending cuts when President George W. Bush was in office?

The Iraq war and the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy added $3 trillion to our national debt. Now, all of a sudden, the Republicans want spending cuts. But let us not take away tax loopholes and cut oil company profits; let's make the cuts to the poor and the middle class.

We should recall every member of Congress and replace them with high school kids. I am sure they would do a much better job.
