Afraid that you'll be paying for hurricane relief through higher taxes? Have no fear! Republicans are here! US Republicans say hurricane won't stop budget cuts.
Yes, through mud and storm the Republicans march on, slashing Federal programs to help the most vulnerable and putting the savings into the pockets of the most fortunate.
Democratic leaders have said that budget plan "would likely cut programs that many victims of Hurricane Katrina will be relying on."
Republicans use their Super Math Powers to counter that. For example, they claiming that by cutting Medicaid, "Dramatically more people will be covered." Huh? Gosh I wish I were a smart Republican so I could understand that calculation!
