So remember back when Bill Clinton and Al Gore balanced the budget? Then W and his cronies on the Supreme Court stole the 2000 election and immediately spent more money on defense, cut taxes on rich people, deregulated Wall Street, and started a war that could never be stopped by attacking several nations who had never ever attacked us. Wall street immediately raped the housing market, crashed the American economy, while the managers who did this gave themselves huge bonuses when Congress bailed them out. W then handed President Obama a massive budget deficit leading to a massive increase in the National Debt.

Republicans then blamed Obama for every evil thing Republicans had done and continue to this day, even though Obama isn't President any more.

Republicans continue to cut taxes on rich people and spend more on defense, and try to cut every program that actually makes America a better place to live.

Diane Black is a shining example of the GOP ideal as it exists right this minute. She has issued a budget that cuts taxes on rich people and corporations, both of which are awash in cash at the moment and obviously need much more money to get by on.

Social Services Block Grant, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Supplemental Security Income or Disability Insurance all get whacked. The Energy, Education, Agriculture committees get huge whacks. Rural hospitals? See ya! Diane Black is going to give a helping hand to the Military Industrial Complex and the stinking rich. Eveybody else be damned!

Read it and weep...for America!
