    EDITORIAL: GOP proposes real spending cut

    For the first time in almost 50 years, a congressional budget is on the table that would make an actual spending cut. We're not talking about a Washington "cut" that happens when government spends more money but less than it would have liked to have spent. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul D. Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, gives a nod to the common-sense understanding of the term with an outline for federal expenditures in 2012 that would come in at $89 billion less than outlays in 2011. That's a real 2.5 percent reduction.
