Wonder what Kudlow is smoking? I'll believe the decreased deficit when I see it at the end of the year.

He mentions “would freeze most spending on agriculture, veterans and science, slash or eliminate dozens of federal programs, and force more costs, from Medicaid to housing, onto state and local governments.”

I'm not a veteran so I don't know what benefits veterans are losing though I hear that benefits are being lost (though I know of one retired colonel who is going to have his spine operation done privately because of complications to getting it done in military hospitals and yes, he has Tri Care for Life). At any rate, the proposal is to cut more benefits for veterans on top of whatever has been done. Well, just like Blacks vote for Democrats - no matter what, veterans tend to vote for Republicans - no matter what. I guess it is fine that veterans acquiesce in this, but somehow it doesn't seem right to me to stiff our veterans.
