Rep. Ross Hunter: "Just spending less money...that’s not reform"

Publicola gained some pithy insight into how the lead House budget-writer thinks about the budget.

When asked to compare the steeper cuts in the Senate proposal against the cuts made in the House, Ways & Means Chair Ross Hunter earned his second Publicola quote-of-the-day:
Just spending less money on education and children’s health care, that’s not reform, that’s just spending less money. Spending less money on kid’s health care and not giving a hand up to people that need help, that’s not why I’m here. In fact, that’s the opposite of why I’m here.
Read the rest here. Hunter has also written about the budget on his personal blog here.
