The Tea Party's goal in the budget stalemate is pretty simple - cut spending.
Really cut spending.
Not just say you're cutting when it's only a slight letup in the rate of growth.
Things we don't need, stop spending money on.
Saying there are cuts in a deal won't do. We want to verify the amount of cuts.
President Reagan said "Trust, but verify." Tea Party leaders say "Cut and verify."
We've run out of money and taxpayers. Cutting is the only way to go.
No more pretending to cut.
Cut, and verify.
