Good Morning Gentle Readers,
I used to hang with a shrinker who often observed that it is difficult to get what you want when you don't know what *it* is. I guess those in need of shrinkery have difficulty defining what it is that they want out of life.
Despite being sent back to Foggy Bottom with a mandate to cut spending, apparently John Boehner doesn't know what *it* is either.
From an interview with NBC's Brian Williams:
WILLIAMS: Name a program right now that we could do without.
BOEHNER: I don’t think I have one off the top of my head.
Really? Try these, Mr Speaker.
Then again, maybe Boehner knows exactly what he wants. He co-authored No Child Left Behind, which increased Department of Education spending by 80% without educating a single child. He supported Medicare Part D, a staggering $550 billion handout to the pharmaceutical industry. He was an early and vocal supporter of the $700 billion dollar bailout, which, among other things, pulled the stake outta BofA's vile, malevolent heart. The market had decreed death, but BofA staggered back from the precipice of the grave to flounder on, visiting incompetence and malice upon Americans everywhere.
$15,000.00 (cash) and this bridge is yours:
