Obama to Cut 0.5% of Budget... Is This a Joke?

The Washington Post details:

"We can no longer afford to spend as if deficits do not matter and waste is not our problem," Obama said. "We can no longer afford to leave the hard choices for the next budget, the next administration, or the next generation."

But the proposals to trim 121 programs identified by the White House as wasteful or unnecessary amounted to only one-half of 1 percent of the $3.55 trillion budget Obama has submitted for the fiscal year that begins in October.
