Rep. John Campbell, R-Calif., one of three Republicans to vote against the fiscal year 2011 budget bill last week, says both parties are abdicating responsibility to truly cut spending. The dozens of floor votes on amendments to the bill make it clear that neither side is really willing to stomach a significant reduction in government spending, he says, according to The Hill.

parties, shun, speeding, cuts"The details of the debate and votes on the amendments shed some light on why I fear that, even after the 2010 elections, the enormous inertia of Congress to spend has not yet been overcome," Campbell wrote in a "Laptop Report" Sunday posted on his website. "I think America is ready to do what is necessary to avoid national fiscal collapse and calamity. But, I'm not sure Congress is there yet."
