I didn’t take Patty Murray’s budget very seriously. Indeed, I would have completely ignored the plan by Senate Democrats if it wasn’t for the fact that I felt compelled to debunk her mythology about the 1990s.
America’s political cartoonists are similarly underwhelmed.
Here’s Lisa Benson’s analysis.
A great cartoon because it recognizes that the problem is bloated government, not red ink.
Steve Breen also is not impressed.
Last but not least, thisJerry Holbert cartoon also is worth sharing.
It will be very interesting to see what we get (from both a substance perspective and humor perspective) when the White House finally decides to issue its budget.
That budget was legally required back on the first Monday in February. Based on what we saw last year and the year before that, I’m not holding my breath expecting anything more than another tax-and-spend blueprint.
