This is an article discussing the budget cut that the president was supposed to make. He had said that he would be making some trims to the budget in certain areas and not in others. The democrats and republicans and had come to agreement on the proposed cuts. When the budget was released it turned out Obama did not follow through with what he said. I think that budget cuts need to be made because of the enormous debt we are in. It is a tricky situation though where we make these cuts. Republicans want to make the cuts to the less urgent social services and the democrats want to cut defense spending. I side with the republicans. We need a large budget for defense, people do not need all of the aid programs that they have.
