Keep Starving the Beast

It appears that the Republican dominated Tax & Budget Reform Committee have decided that the best time to put spending caps in place is during a recession. I think its brilliant. The TBRC passed the resolution unanimously, which I believe puts it on the slate for the coming session, or maybe guarantees it a ballot slot as an amendment in November. As Grover Norquist said, "I don't want to abolish government. I simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub."

Speaker of the House Marco Rubio is also reportedly pursuing similar legislation.

Text of the resolution.

The St. Pete Times Buzz blog has been leading this issue.
