consistent republicans

So good to see the Republicans are remaining true to their ideals. For example, they oppose the planned stimulus package. SoDak Republican Senator John Thune worries it will make the big deficit even bigger, in keeping with the Republican policy that only Republican presidents and Republican Congresses may blow out the budget by spending on Republican priorities like tax cuts for the rich, and guns.

Charles Grassley of Iowa fears that giving money to the states for Medicaid is a bad idea. Grassley all of a sudden wants some sort of fiscal discipline on state governors; the fact that this would help the poor is in direct contravention to the GOP standard "help the rich, soak the poor" policy.

Meanwhile, in the real world, even MICROSOFT is laying off people for the first time ever.
