We better cut out $90 Billion each year for the next ten years! Overall we expect to cut the $1 Trillion deficit by $22 Billion in the next 10 years ... that is... if we don't sell our souls again..."

This is the best the Republicans can do? THIS is the culmination of this months long debate on spending? 10 pennies a year?
