"With the submission today of the President’s proposed budget for next year (FY 2012), Washington descends further into the furious debate about less. How much less will government do? The president pledges to freeze domestic spending for five years, reducing it to a portion of the economy not seen since Eisenhower, while investing in areas like infrastructure vital to growth. 'More big spending,' cry Republican leaders, promising to slash non-security spending by over 15% in the remaining seven months of this fiscal year." [editor's note: If only the loudest voices about spending cuts weren't so damned convinced that "Fortress American Empire" must be preserved - SAT] (02/14/11)
