They haven't the slightest desire to do so. This is how they buy votes. If they have to cut -- really have to cut -- they will cut the things that really matter. Painful cuts. Outrageous cuts. Cuts that get people into the streets demanding immediate increases in taxes so that the things that were just cut can be quickly restored.
But cutting wine tasting??? Why would they cut that?
where do I get my free Obama wine tastings?
