Every year the Departments and Agencies add on new projects and inflation estimates. Cutting in the base year of these programs deducts all the increases budgeted for in future years.

This is how Washington DC has done things for decades. They talk about alleged "cuts" like they are terrible drastic measures when in fact they are only slightly reducing the mind bogglingly huge increase.

They have been successfully robbing a blissfully unaware American people for decades. Think about what your money buys today versus what it bought in say... the 1950s. One income was plenty enough to support your entire family comfortably back then. In 1969, the car in my avatar cost my mother about $3,000. I bought it from her in 1994 for $4,500. It's a nice classic musclecar, but the increase in money paid isn't because it appreciated in value. The value of the money changed dramatically. Today a similarly equipped new one costs about $30,000. Today the norm is for to have two incomes per household because the money is worth so much less.
