    Yes, because you and I aren't capable of managing our own affairs, and our problems aren't our fault. It's Big Oil's fault.

    545 people, folks. We'd better start putting the blame where it belongs. This isn't Democrat/Republican. This is every last one of them. The 545 People Responsible For All of America's Woes (You've prolly all read this, but never hurts to read it again.)
    We have to spend some money.... We have to rethink our principles if we want to drastically cut spending. What do we stand for, how much safety is sufficient in terms of malaria prevention, vaccinations, research for alternative fuel and energy, how important is investing in our education, college education, our infrastructure, should we have public transport or none at all, how much taxes are we all willing to pay for the minimal of what we want?

    I keep forgetting that.

    What about the 70,000 children that could die at any moment?

    Then you aren't paying attention to the OP.

    Republicans are trying to reduce spending.

    The 0bama admin is claiming those reductions will kill 70,000 children.

    What do the Republican's care about children or old people?

    As a famous Dem once said:

    GOP = Get Old People

    No fear mongering there.

    If this is true:
    USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah told the House Appropriations State and Foreign Ops subcommittee on Wednesday that the budget plan, which would cut $61 billion in federal spending, would lead to the deaths of 30,000 kids in a malaria control program that would have to be scaled back, 24,000 from a lack of immunizations and 16,000 from a lack of skilled attendants at birth...
    Then don't the cuts do just that...

    "Kill" is a dramatic word obviously, but if we stop the immunizations, etc. won't people die?

    And you know for sure that the GOP cuts would cut immunizations?

    No I don't know for sure, that's why I said IF it's true. And IF it is true, then people will die.
