Republican priorities: Guns, not butter



The Republican budget choppers in the House — fully supported by the Arkansas congressional Republicans, particularly Rep. Tim Griffin of Little Rock — are set to return to war on the American people.. Says Reuters:

Republicans in the House of Representatives on Monday will fire their first shots of the next deficit-reduction battle, advancing legislation to cut nearly $380 billion largely from social programs while protecting defense spending.

The cuts to food stamps, child tax credits and Medicaid healthcare for the poor [and elderly in nursing homes], among others, are certain to stall in the Democratic-controlled U.S. Senate.

Elections. Consequences.
