Fiscal Conservatives

The fiscal conservatives are flexing their muscles. Good. It's about time that Congress does what it is supposed to. I may neither like nor agree with the cuts that they make, but I do agree with the principal that drives them. In the long run, a well balanced budget and good monetary policy is good for progressive policy.

Our programs always need their "bang for the buck" assessed. We will never have enough money to cover all of our priorities all of the time. We will always wrestle with the question of which worthy program stays, and which ones goes. That's life. Sometimes programs that I like will get cut. That may include my job. I accept that. Nobody said Democracy was easy or perfect. Nobody promised us happy choices.
