Now at this point, I expected the GOP to come up with a list of cuts that involve obscure research grants to study polar bear sex or something along those lines.
Unfortunately for us all, their proposed cuts are even stupider than I'd ever imagined:
Rather than proposing, for example, the elimination of the Education Department, as they have in the past, Republicans are suggesting killing a program that pays for building sidewalks, bike paths and crossing guards as part of the Safe Routes to Schools program. That would save $183 million a year.
Vote Republican: We'll save money by letting your children get crushed by cars!
We need a better opposition party. Is anyone thinking of reconstituting the Whigs?
