Sen. Mike Lee posts a video rant against Congress here. It is an epic twelve-mionute rant against the way funding has been done, and he’s absolutely right.
Watch Office of Management and Budget director Cynthia Burwell repeatedly refuse to answer a simple question from Sen. Jeff Sessions about whether the Obama administration’s proposed 2015 budget increases spending above the levels provided in the Ryan-Murray budget agreement passed last December. This is what the Obama Administration does — stonewall, obfuscate, then lie.
Why the hell should it take “protracted negotiations” to cut 221 staff at the UN headquarters and freeze pay for a year for the New York workers, and reduce the general budget by a whole $50 million?
Joe Torsella, the US diplomat in charge of UN management affairs, hailed the move to “eliminate unnecessary, duplicative or outdated” jobs.

House Speaker John Boehner has tweeted out a sharp-elbowed video on His Oneness being wiling to negotiate with Putin, but not with Republicans. It’s quite well-done, and I expect will annoy Democrats intensely.
Sen. Mary Landrieu took to the floor to declare that the Washington spending problem exists only on FOX News. She eventually said it was only discretionary spending, but that isn’t true either. She is either as profoundly economically illiterate as His Oneness, or equally as delusional, or equally as willing to lie through her teeth.
