One of the darlings of conservatives is up in arms over saving money:
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) fired up the crowd at Thursday's Conservative Political Action Conference with red-meat rhetoric the right loves to hear.
The five-term lawmaker, who faces a tough reelection bid this fall, accused President Obama and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) of forcing top-down priorities on Americans.
"I want my liberty back," King declared Thursday, earning strong applause from the crowd.
King compared the Capitol Hill janitors who replaced the lightbulbs in his office with lower-energy bulbs to the East German communist secret police, describing them as "Nancy [Pelosi]'s Stasi troops," and complained of a water-saving showerhead in his shower.
So doing things that will save the government money is the equivalent to being a Nazi? If you think conservatives really are what they say, you are sadly mistaken. That's why the GOP is in such disarray today. No one knows what they really stand for!
