Reading this, I thought, "there has to be more to this...they can't have done anything that despicable" so I went to go read the article.

Some Republican moderates are balking at cuts to anti-poverty programs, especially in light of a $70 billion tax cut that could come to a vote soon after the budget bill, more than wiping out the first bill's deficit reduction.

So, it's true. A few more billions in tax cuts for the "have" while the poor "have-nots" may be faced with premiums for their Medicare insurance?

I'd scream and cuss and throw things...but I'm preaching to the choir here and I know it. Unless this story winds up on the front page of half or more of the daily newspapers in the country and/or is covered on the nightly news broadcasts, most people will never know.

The Alaska drilling program (something I am adamantly against) will get more publicity.

The House passed its own version, equally or more distasteful.

What should be done is to roll back the unequal tax cuts and stop spending a billion dollars a month to kill people in Iraq, but we all know how likely those are to happen.

Makes me tired.
