The cuts go on

Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to de-fund Barack Obama's Teleprompter.

Thursday, the House voted to de-fund eight "czars" working as advisors and who are, according to the bill's sponsor, Representative Steve Scalise (R-Louisiana), "unappointed, unaccountable people who are literally running a shadow government, heading up these little fiefdoms that nobody can seem to identify where they are or what they're doing."  (Link to story here.)

The Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-Ohio), has thrown down the gauntlet saying, "Read my lips: We're going to cut spending."  (Link here.)

I hope that you're right, Mr. Speaker.  Too bad that the Democrats still control the Senate and the White House.
