The ‘Age of Austerity,’ GOP Style
As you may recall, when the ‘conservative’ hey, stop laughing! House GOP passed the Farm Bill last January, several members were quick to tout the big farm subsidy ‘savings’ that the Congressional Budget Office projected. The media, in typical fashion, accepted such statements at face value, dutifully reporting the ‘savings’ in their frequent reports.
This is the kind of bs that that should get GOP congressmen fired. We need more Eric Cantors – the ones that get sent home.
