Senate OK's bill to cut deficit with Cheney's helpWord, sister.
VP casts tie-breaking vote on legislation that will reduce benefit programs
The Republican-controlled Senate passed legislation to cut federal deficits by $39.7 billion on Wednesday by the narrowest of margins, 51-50, with Vice President Dick Cheney casting the deciding vote.
The measure, the product of a year's labors by the White House and congressional Republicans, imposes the first restraints in nearly a decade of federal benefit programs such as Medicaid, Medicare and student loans.
Because of course that is what you should focus on when cutting spending. And that half-dead robot-motherfucker can't be bothered to fly back to DC from his fishing trip when half of Lousiana is under water but he can sure get his ass back fast when he has the opportunity to screw the less-fortunate and keep his cronies from having to give up a goddamn DIME!
That's so the holiday spirit. I bet Jesus thinks fucking over the poor is an AWESOME birthday present! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE!
