Fox News published the following excerpt from the Left-Wing AP at http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/08/02/budget-battle-moves-on-to-supe...:
But there's a real price to be paid if the committee deadlocks or if either the House or Senate rejects the panel's recommendations: the threat of deep, across-the-board spending cuts that would strike GOP priorities like defense and programs for the poor that are priorities for Democrats. The cuts wouldn't hit until January 2013, but their potential impact would have affected interest groups like defense contractors and farmers gulping.
Let's set the record straight. Defense is an enumerated power in the federal Constitution. At least the GOP read Article 1, Section 8. Only conservatives care about poor. Preserving and promoting Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness is for EVERYONE.
Under the Statists, the poor stay poor and the rich get richer. Under the Constitution, we help people who CAN'T carry their own water. Under the Constitution, if you WON'T carry your own water, then don't. Just don't expect the rest of us to fund your laziness.
We are compromising our Constitution. Compromise Is Planned Failure. Never compromising Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness is having the will to be fearless and relentless, while remaining confident and true to yourself, no matter what the obstacles.
