True self discipline???

From Fox…

OBAMA: “Starting in 2011, we are prepared to freeze government spending for three years. Spending related to our national security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will not be affected. But all other discretionary government programs will. Like any cash-strapped family, we will work within a budget to invest in what we need and sacrifice what we don’t.”

THE FACTS: The anticipated savings from this proposal would amount to less than one percent of the deficit — and that’s if the president can persuade Congress to go along.

My take?

A financially responsible, cash-strapped family doesn’t just freeze a few items. They do whatever it takes to get back into the black.

DRUDGE REPORT: ABC TURNS PROGRAMMING OVER TO OBAMA 2009®

OK, so I think Drudge does at times overstate his case just to make a good headline, but this does seem concerning. Where are the checks and balances here?
