BE BOLD, BE BRAVE, GO BIG

36 Senators, more than a third of the entire senatorial body, joined hands on Thursday and held a press conference to send a bipartisan call for serious cuts in the federal budget.

When you develop your expenditure cutting plan “Be bold, be brave, go big”.  These are the words of exhortation given by Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad of North Dakota, chairman of the Senate Budget Committee.

Conrad’s remarks were officially directed to the bipartisan panel charged with presenting a bill by November 3rd cutting 1,500,000,000,000 (1.5T) from the federal budget.  However, Steven Hayward, writing for Power Line, sees the Senators’ pledge as a message intended for Barack Obama.  Hayward calls it Obama’s Last Chance. He may be right.  The President is getting very little support from his party.
