Modest -- to the point of nullity

By Owen Paine on Tuesday October 31, 2006 11:01 AM

I read these are the top proirity Bongo Congo Dem desires:
• Put new rules in place to break the link between lobbyists and legislation
Would a halfwit believe that?
• Enact all the recommendations made by the 9/11 commission.
That's it -- play up the domestic front in the GWOT, but don't make a graphic proposal like "we'll search every container coming into this country by any means necessary." Nope -- make it vague and dull, make it all fine print.
• Raise the federal minimum wage to $7.25 an hour.
Okay, bingo, but where's the index to inflation' the broadening of application, the revamp of the unemployment insurance system, the the the....
• Cut the interest rate on federally supported student loans in half
This should really rake 'em in by the millions.
• Allow the government to negotiate directly with pharmaceutical companies for lower drug prices for Medicare patients.
Great -- where's the pitch on this?
• Broaden the types of stem cell research allowed with federal funds.
Are you sure you haven't already got those voters, chum?
• Impose pay-as-you-go budget rules, requiring that new entitlement spending or tax cuts be offset with entitlement spending cuts or tax hikes.
Now we have arrived at our destination... this total horseshit will nullify any good in what's above. It's top shelf high octane bobo Rubinomics.

If the elephants hadn't shit the district six feet deep all the way out to the last lane of the beltway, this feeble stuff wouldn't elect Jesus of Nazareth.

See...right there, I read that first one and couldn't believe anything after that. "Break the link between lobbyists and legislation?" The Democrats are going to do that? Right. They might as well promise to stop breathing.


That quote-unquote liberalism promised by the Republic of Kossizstan won't fare too well under the last measure.

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
