I'm proposing a new rule: Unless you advocate cutting some spending that you like, you don't get to complain about the budget deficit.
The world is filled with Congress-critters who go on and on and on about spending, but the moment the budget ax come anywhere close to them, they scream bloody murder. I'm sick of it.
When Mitch McConnell, (R-Coal Country) calls for ending coal mining tax breaks or Ben Nelson (D-Land of Corn) wants cuts in farm subsidies, then they can lecture the rest of on spending. Till then, shut up.
