What a difference a few months make:

POLITICO - 30 Jan 13 - House GOP unafraid of defense cuts

POLITICO - 11 July 11 - House GOP balks at defense cuts

Republicans voted Jan. 15 to endorse a much bigger cut, taking nearly $10 billion from the Pentagon to help pay for disaster aid.

The GOP has lost its morality and its nerve. Shame on all of them.

The entire Fiscal Cliff tax hike revenue just went to the pork laden Sandy bill, and the GOP has "embraced" Sequestration that guts the military.

Glad those beach house repairs will all get Federal dollars.

Any major natural disaster now necessitates a federal bailout of at least one hundred billion dollars.

Withdraw from Germany, South Korea and Japan, and focus on defending our own country. Do that, and sequestration need not harm us.

This is about harming the American workforce as it is about “spending cuts.”

Good!

As long as they’re unafraid, they’re less likely to cave to new taxes!

What GOP? The GOP has been extinct for the last 8 years.
