Steve Bell is like 25 years behind the times in his choice of supermodels.


"You don't have 50 votes in the Senate for most of this, let alone 60," said Steve Bell, a former GOP budget aide who is now a senior analyst at the Bipartisan Policy Center. "There's as much chance that this budget will pass as there is that I'm going to have a date with Elle Macpherson."

How many rough budgets passed for any President ever? I can't remember any. In fact I think it is merely an outline of what the goals are.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I was under the impression that Meals on Wheels is not a federal program. It's part of the CDBG -- the block grants that Feds give to the states. And then some states make the decision to use that money on Meals on Wheels.

Cdbgs are grants from the federal government for a specific use. The most impoverished states that don't receive state funding are going to take a hit.

Meals on wheels, kids' meals, housing for disabled, etc.

There's a lot of programs that are majorly reliant on the block grants.

Southern states are really going to take a hit.
