Tim Griffin: Millionaires before kids



U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin got his photo op yesterday with cute Head Start kids, prominently displayed on 1B of the Democrat-Gazette, but the payload was down in the related article inside the paper (pay wall), when Charlie Frago reported Griffin's answer to the question of whether tax cuts for the wealthy were more important than money for Head Start.


“What’s important to me is to force the federal government to get on a fiscally responsible path. Before anyone talks about taxing people more, particularly people that create jobs ... before I want to have that conversation, I think we need to demand credibility from the federal government on spending,” Griffin said. “To me, that’s like a gambler sitting at a slot machine and saying, ‘I don’t have a gambling problem, I just don’t have enough money.’”

Translation: Yes.
