Many 2011 federal budget cuts weren't real cuts: Washington Post

The Washington Post notices the fraud of what modern politicians call "budget cuts":
In the real world, in fact, many of their “cuts” cut nothing at all. The Transportation Department got credit for “cutting” a $280 million tunnel that had been canceled six months earlier. It also “cut” a $375,000 road project that had been created by a legislative typo, on a road that did not exist.
Just a reminder, when you hear con men like Barack Obama and tenured socialist professors talk about "draconian" budget cuts. This is article is well worth your time.
