Cutting 74 billion from a 3.83 trillion dollar budget is being called draconian.
But when you propose increasing oil production in the US by 15% or 10% or even 5%, they say that it would just be a drop in the bucket, and wouldn't even noticeably lower gas prices.
So how is 2% (1.932%) draconian when it's a budget cut, but 5 times that amount is a drop in the bucket when it comes to oil?
Come on guys, If you start crying at 2%, you're going to be dehydrated by the time the real budget cutting starts.
