Republicans Finally Have Specific Plan for Deficit Reduction
So there. Republicans do TOO have specific proposals. They’re NOT just a bunch of mindless automatons sitting there saying “No.”
They have a detailed plan which will eliminate a whopping one half of one percent of the budget. Whoa!
Their target is the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Emergency Contingency Fund. This bloated inefficient program has created 250,000 jobs in 37 states. It was part of that commie stimulus package. Rep. Tom Price (R—Befuddled) said this program has encouraged too many people to lie around taking handouts.
Several Republican Governors have been in favor of the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) emergency fund, including Haley Barbour of Mississippi. He said the program provided:
“Much-needed aid during this recession by enabling businesses to hire new workers, thus enhancing the economic engines of our local communities.”
Oh well, it’s kind of a moot point anyway. You see, this program that Rep. Tom Price is targeting — you know, the one that created 250,000 jobs for laid-off workers — Has Already Expired as of last September.
How’s that “takin’back yer country” thingy workin’ out for ya?
