For Tom Price, haste makes waste

IN THEIR haste to prove that they ain't kidding around these days, hyperventilating House Republicans unveiled a plan to eliminate a welfare program that they say would eliminate $2.5 billion from the federal budget. But wait! The Huffington Post reports that the proposal announced by Rep. Tom Price of Georgia, who heads the Republican Study Committee, would kill a program that has already expired. ( Price was targeting a program in what he called President Obama's failed "stimulus" package. ) Well, it made another good photo-op for the congressman.
And the Republican-controlled House hasn't even been seated yet. Never mind.

If you are poor or working class barely hanging on, get ready to be fall by the wayside beginning in January. First, cuts to the unemployed. Second, cuts to programs aimed at the poor and children. Third, cuts to programs aimed at the working class. Good times lay ahead!

These silly Republicans. They actually believe people voted for them. I suspect the votes for Republicans were really votes against Democrats. When there are only two choices, it's very easy to misinterpret results. Check out the Senate results in Alaska - the GOP candidate came in second, and, yes, the Democrat third.
