Democrats Started the State Department Budget Cuts, Not Republicans
Here’s one thing that’s important to note about all of these State Department budget cuts that the Republicans are supposedly responsible for.
The budget cuts started in 2010.
The Republicans didn’t take over until 2011.
Yes, they made budget cuts, but so did Nancy Pelosi, who is now trying to throw Republicans under the bus. Of course, she is just doing the parrot trick. The woman does not have an original thought in her head.
The fact of the matter is that as the Democrats figure out that their spending is unsustainable, they cut the budgets of every department to pay for their entitlement state.
Military, diplomacy, education, research.
But they always make sure they have more than enough to give to the poor, illegals and other non-citizens.
In addition, the White House proposed an additional $129 million for “Embassy Security, Construction, and Maintenance.”
Where was their concern for the security budget back then?
