Rep Buck McKeon reiterates Congress SHOULD NOT kick the can on spending cuts

Congressman Buck McKeon – the chairman of the Armed Services Committee – is mad.

And he should be. Our country is staring at a package of horribly-designed spending cuts, cuts that will decimate our economic recovery, like a deer in the headlights of a Mack truck.

We've been eagerly waiting to talk to Chairman McKeon every since he said last week:

"Why don't we just sit down now and say 'look, we're not mature enough, we're not adult enough to solve this, so we're going to just kick it down the road?'"

Delay the inevitable because it's just too hard right now? Delay a deadline that Congress gave itself? Say it ain't so. Rep. Buck McKeon comes OutFront tonight.

    Well... Just in case they're not mature enough, I'm still pretty sure the Onion could dispatch that emergency team of 8th grade civics teachers to Capitol Hill...
