2 By Floor: Watch As Libs Argue Against 'Less Spending'

This week lawmakers saw President Trump’s Budget proposal and Democrats wasted no time hitting the floors of Congress with their arguments against it.

The arguments were persuasive in a way that only liberals like Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) can conjure up the words for.

“And there’s a simple philosophical difference in what the Progressive Caucus believes and the president’s budget,” Khanna said on the House floor. “If you believe, as the Republicans do that we need to cut taxes and have less spending you would be for this president’s budget.”

A powerful argument there.

While some would say that Trump’s budget doesn’t go far enough in cutting taxes or spending, the Democrats are really afraid that the government money faucet may get its spigot turned, and the gush of money may be slowed for their favorite programs.

“This is foolish. It’s not acceptable. You don’t turn these things on and off,” Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) said.

It seems the government money spigot only turns one way for liberals. Once tax payer dollars are turned on for a project almost any attempt to reduce the flow of money is “a simple philosophical difference in what the Progressive Caucus believes.”
