Dick Cheney's Christmas Gift to the Poor

In order to show his unwavering love for the American people, Cheney changed his travel plans and flew back early to provide the tie-breaking vote for cuts to Medicare, Medicaid.

Republicans said the significance lies in more than mere numbers, adding
that programs such as Medicare and Medicaid threaten to consume an
unsustainable amount of federal revenue if their growth is not trimmed
quickly.


Where as tax cuts for the wealthy, subsidies to corporate welfare queens, no-bid contracts to Halliburton and illegal foreign wars are quite sustainable.

Such a lovely show of Christmas spirit to the poorest Americans, don't you think?

    My brother emailed about this supposed "deficit reduction" thusly: "40 BILLION OVER 5 YEARS?! THAT'S LIKE THROWING A DIXIE CUP OFF THE QUEEN MARY TO LIGHTEN THE LOAD."

    I would say that his heart is three sizes too small if I truly believed that he actually had one.

    In Newsweek, they said that Cheney's poll numbers are in danger of dropping lower than Lord Voldemort's.

    Instead of cutting Medicare and Medicaid, couldn't we just ship the geezers over to Iraq?
