Raw Story has gotten their hands on one of the first proposals for budget
cuts the GOP has authored. Seems like they are not as much up on public opinion
as we would hope. They aren't targeting the actual pork items, instead they got
their sites set on something else. Mostly they are calling for cuts in Medicare
and Medicaid, reduce funding for AIDS programs, cancel the NASA moon mission,
and scrap funding to arts programs.
The plan was authored by Representative Mike Pence and is available online
here. Essentially the Republicans are doing everything they can to protect
their precious tax cuts. This means cutting out programs that benefit the middle
and lower class people of this country.
