    But they leave farm subsidies unchanged.

    I gotta say that while cuts need to be made to the budget, when Republicans cut food assistance to women, infants, and children while insisting on maintaining the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, it only serves to reinforce the image of Republicans' as being cold and heartless.

    Seems pretty foolish to me. It makes what they tried to do to Medicare look positively altruistic in comparison.

    Well, they have to find more money for tax cuts for the rich somewhere! Why not take it from those who can least defend themselves? Good move GOP!

    But they do make great cannon fodder for future Republican wars.

    As long as they can still give tax breaks to the rich and give oil companies tax incentives, they will be fine. The GOP's unwritten agenda is to rid the country of the lower class. In doing so, if some of the middle class are lost, well, that is the collateral damage of political war. How they convince so many in the middle class that they are actually interested in their well being, I will never know? Every move they make and every policy they push is a clear signal that they are interested only in corporate American, the rich, the influential, and white people.
