The wedgie for America

Talking Points Memo takes a look at what the Republican Party's Pledge to America would devastate. Do I hear any disavowals from Griffin-Womack-Crawford-Rankin?

Oh, hell. Who needs college grants, police officers, medical research, housing and transportation assistance or salaries for tax collectors.

RELATED: A "young gun" Republican with his group's thoroughly inadequate answer on how you can cut taxes and reduce the deficit. This is Tim Griffin budget balancing at work. A handful of insignificant items, designed to sound smart — except for the one about cutting child nutrition programs. That one's dumb any way you slice it.
