Census Bureau Cuts Threaten Seniors

Congress discusses the 2011 budget

In spite of the doomsday predictions from Democrats, the $61B in spending cuts in the 2011 House budget contains very little that affects the indigent or the elderly. For the complete list of cuts, see Budget Battles Begin Over Republicans Proposed $61 Billion In Cuts in Centrist Cynic's What We Should Know blog. The next biggest cuts, after the ones listed in the cartoon are (brace yourselves, poor & elderly) Department of Agriculture and Federal building funds.


  1. Are you saying that there are members of congress that are misrepresenting where the cuts are coming from? I'm shocked! Shocked! I tell you, to see fibbing in the Halls of Congress.
