"Operation offset" - new rethug initiative to squeeze $$$ from domestic
programs.

One minute speeches this morning. Leading the charge are Reps. :puke: Mike Pence
and :puke: Marsha Blackburn.

It's another distraction. Resolutions will reduce federal spending by 1-2% (haven't read the bills for the fine print).

HOW ABOUT BRINGING THE TROOPS HOME, THAT WILL SAVE A BUNDLE!

2. I'll try one more time
Operation Offset is the rethugs' code name to cut back on block grants. The House passed a continuing resolution that funds programs at the lower of the 2005 level or the new House budget, WHICHEVER IS LOWER.

Wake up, DU.

3. My computer is Kaput. So I have to wait until I get to work. I watched
the Reps (esp. the Texas ones) last Wed week explain all this. The one I especially liked (in a twisted way) and most of the oinkettes were touting, was the plan to delay the drug benefit for seniors.

They proposed taking all the non-existent money from the non-funded drug plan and putting it into hurricane relief.

I wish I could pay my bills that way.
