The Continuing Resolution: So What Really Is Draconian?


I have been watching the House Proceedings on C-Span regarding the Continuing Resolution (CR). Part of the Democratic talking points is the use of “draconian” when referring to many of the proposed spending cuts put forth by the Republicans. A person on a Cleveland.com Political Forum provided a link to an excellent article, which I quote from below, and which redirects the application of that the term “draconian” to where it belongs …

“The only genuinely "draconian" policy in Washington is the multi-trillion-dollar annual deficits being run up that constitute a death sentence on our children's and grandchildren's prosperity and liberty.” 

--- Tony Blankley, “It’s the Deficits That Are Draconian, Not Their Cuts,”
