The Tea Party and Republicans should be as happy as larks, with this budget. I know that the Republicans didn't get all the money they wanted cut. But we need to remember that the Democrats didn't want any cuts and Obama wanted to add to the budget. Since the Republican Party only controls half of 1/3 of the government I'd have to say they did a great job taking control of this budget and doing the right thing.
With Democrats controlling the Senate and White House still I didn't expect much from the Republican Party. This November the Republicans will take the White House and maybe the Senate and then you will see the kind of change we need in this country.
Conservatives need to focus on State and local leaders to make deep and lasting cuts as well. The power of the Tea Party is being felt in Washington and locally. Next year will be the year that government shrinks to a sustanable level, that the private sector can afford.
