But then I read that they are cutting support for the Special Olympics. Jesus Christ.
I think Ezra Klein gets it:
"And that gets to what this debate is really about: not cutting spending or reducing the deficit, but cutting spending Republicans don't like while avoiding any and all tax increases -- even if that means the country has higher deficits and the middle- and working-class bear more of the burden."
Don't tell me that the Republicans don't hate the poor and working class. And don't tell me that they care about the needy.
They don't. And the tsunami cuts show that they are even more stupid than they are callous.
