McKeon will pass cost of deficit on to us all

I read with amusement The Signal’s Jan. 6 article about how Congressman Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, is going to tighten the belt and reduce the deficit.

Target one is repealing the health care reform. The repeal will add $145 billion to the deficit for 2012-19, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Target two is funding the defense department. Not reducing, but increasing funding.

No surprise from McKeon, whose campaign in 2009-10 received $319,000 in donations from the defense industry.

So get ready to tighten your belt to pay for all of this. I guess that is what McKeon really meant to say.
