    John Boehner can't think of a single government program he would cut.

    New Speaker of the House John Boehner was unable to come up with a single government program he would cut when quized by NBC's Brian Williams (via Below The Beltway).


    The exact quote, from the interview (via Reason):

    WILLIAMS: Name a program right now that we could do without.
    BOEHNER: I don’t think I have one off the top of my head.

    The news is definitely concerning conservatives who thought the new Congress was prepared to take a real hatchet to government spending.

    Nick Gillespie, editor of Reason Magazine (libertarian) is particularly upset:

    If after four years in the supposed wilderness you get power and the first thing you do is walk back the suggestion that you're gonna cut $100 billion out of fiscal year 2011 (still without a budget!), and then your main guy bumbles the query above...well, you're not winning any fans among the growing ranks of independents (read: crypto-libertarians) who want a smaller government that does less and costs less.

    Not a particulary good start for the new Republican House.

    What a bunch of BS. He should have started crying.
