"Rep. Greg Harper, R-Miss., reportedly said the fact that ObamaCare officials havenít had their hours cuts highlights the political nature of the cuts."
"We're talking about at least a 15 percent furlough of current air-traffic controllers, resulting in delays and perhaps safety concerns, but yet this has been a selective political item by the administration," Harper said."
I'd say that's just about right.
This maneuver, which originated from Obama's white house, was very well calculated to make the republican controlled house look like the bad guys.(as if they needed any help looking like idiots)
Anyone who is paying attention could see this coming. It had nothing to do with doing what's best for the country. And Boehner kind of walked right in to it. The republicans seem to have completely lost it in the PR department.
When you see the letter R, or the letter D, or the word incumbent on the ballot, walk on by.
