  1. oops

    This… is the best one

    –The separation into two bills may be intended, in part, to divert attention from the fact that the cuts of almost $35 billion in programs such as Medicaid, Food Stamps, and student loans would be used not to reduce the deficit, but to offset partially the $70 billion in tax cuts.–

    medicaid/food stamps and student loans paid for the richest 1% to get a tax cut… sweeeeetttttt!

  2. HAA!!!!

    well you’re wrong because the Senate won’t follow thru and amend it..

    HA!

    btw, did you know what the only reconciliation bill to increase the deficit was?

    the Bush tax cuts.. nary a GOP complaint on that tho huh..

    check it

    –Taken together, the two planned reconciliation bills — one cutting programs, the other cutting taxes — would increase the deficit by more than $35 billion over five years.

    –Never before has Congress split reconciliation into two separate bills when the overall effect of reconciliation would be to increase deficits, rather than reduce them.

    –The separation into two bills may be intended, in part, to divert attention from the fact that the cuts of almost $35 billion in programs such as Medicaid, Food Stamps, and student loans would be used not to reduce the deficit, but to offset partially the $70 billion in tax cuts.

    –A significant part of the budget cuts would come in programs serving low- and moderate-income Americans, while the benefits of the tax cuts are likely to go overwhelmingly to the best-off taxpayers.

    Stewart said the other night “You live in selective world, it must be nice for you.. just not the rest of us”

    Like I’ve been saying tho.. it goes against the religion of the GOP to admit such things…

    LOL

    and we drank the kool-aid?
