Does Carl Wimmer Have Even a Clue About the Federal Budget?

How in God’s name does this man win elections?

Every time Carl Wimmer is at the Capitol, the town of Herriman is missing its idiot.

From KSL:

Rep. Carl Wimmer, R-Herriman, says Republicans should stick to their guns and demand spending cuts and a balanced budget — even if it means shutting down the federal government temporarily.

Seriously?  Republicans asked for $60 billion in spending cuts.  In the face of a $1.5 trillion dollar deficit.  In what universe does that even come close to a balanced budget?  In a three trillion dollar budget, that’s a rounding error.

“Right now, the federal government is $14 trillion in debt,” Wimmer said. “They’re spending one and a half trillion more than they bring in. We need to cut the deficit and pass the balanced budget. Anything short of that, then they are taking us into a train wreck.”

Any suggestions about how we’re going do that?  Of course not.  That would require the Mustache to think in something other than talking points.  As yet there’s no evidence he’s able to do that.
