The Republican Budget - an empty shell

Aw these Congressional Repugnicans!

The other day, President Obama mentioned that for all the Republican crabbing about his budget, "we haven't seen an alternative budget out of them."

Well, they've got one now. Sort of. Weepy John Boehner held up the Republican "answer," a "glossy 18-page book, 'The Republican Road to Recovery,'" and said, "Here it is, Mr. President."

Heh. Heh. McClatchy has pointed out, poignantly, that "the document contained virtually no specifics on spending, taxes or deficit reduction.." Instead, it "was largely a harangue against Democratic policie and a series of statements of long-held Republican principles."

Oh...not to worry. Weepy Boehner said the details will be forthcoming.

Jesus, these people are not only weepy, but creepy!

Or, as Rep. John Spratt, D-SC, said: "It's like being in the era of the Bush administration all over again."

Of course it is. These fools haven't had a creative idea in a century! They don't want national health care; they want to cut spending (by which Repugnicans always mean cut programs that actually help people); they want to drill everywhere for more oil; and they want to cut taxes.


No wonder they lost the election. I wonder if they realize that yet?

Same old crap from the Hate the Poor Party.

Massive tax breaks for the rich, tax increases for the poor to cover the tax breaks for the rich, and no help for anyone who makes under $250,000/year.

Same old failed policies from St. Ronnie's Reign of Terror, the old rob from the poor and give to the rich.
