The Republican Spending Cut Plan

Now the Republicans have their answer to the snarky question "So, you say tou want to cut spending, what will you cut?" Here are 100 programs the RSC will cut to get to $2.5 trillion in savings in 10 years. Also, "$2.3 trillion of the $2.5 trillion in savings from the Republican Study Committee's Spending Reduction Act would come from cutting non-defense discretionary spending to 2006 and freezing that spending through 2021."

Good plan. There is another good thing about it. The Texas Republicans can adopt the same concept and themselves get to the point of eliminating the shortfall ... just roll back to the 2005-2006 budget and the shortfall would be eliminated.
