First, this is a bullshit deal. It removes virtually all stimulus spending from the budget, in exchange for the protective cover of saving Planned Parenthood.
Second, Obama is the worst goddamned negotiator in the world. Two year olds are better than him.
This deal guarantees a double-dip recession. And for what? Obama cares more about his own reelection than the fact that his inability to push strong economic policies is killing the rest of us.
So if we prove one congressman paid for his girlfriend’s abortion, then congressional paycheck funding is “fungible” and thus not permitted under the Hyde Amendment?
I am so sick of these motherfucking politicians playing these games. Understand, despite all the press conferences, THE DEMS ARE ABOUT TO CAVE. First they gave them $70 billion in tax cuts for the rich, and now they’re going to cut $38 billion that should go to people who need it.
