Shiny new wars, continued Republican douchebaggery, and an excellent interview are in store for you on today’s Majority Report Recap.
An American F15-E fighter jet crashed in Libya. Both pilots ejected safely. It was reported that the crash was caused by a mechanical malfunction.
The corporate spinmeisters at The Wall Street Journal try to get out ahead of this outrage: There is a resurrection of “debtor prisons” and the use of arrest warrants to recoup financial debt.
Let’s count the ways that Rep. Mike Pompeo (R) of Kansas is an asshole:
- tried to kill a consumer-product-safety database
- trying to gut an EPA registry of greenhouse-gas polluters
- hired a former Koch Industries lawyer as his chief of staff
A trifecta! Good for you!
Republicans working hard on creating jobs?
Under standard [IRS] audit procedure, a woman would have to provide evidence to corroborate facts about abortions, rapes, and cases of incest
Nope. How about now?
The House GOP’s 2011 budget would chop $156 million from the Centers for Disease Control’s funding for immunization and respiratory diseases.
I don’t think so. Now?
The House Agriculture Committee endorsed a letter arguing that the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which helps low-income Americans purchase food, would make a better target for cuts than automatic subsidies to farms.
Not at all. The rich get richer and the poor die. GOP 2012!
