    Yes, but, no one has lost their job. Huge difference.

    So save 3 billion, is that not worth it? Is there some threshold of savings that we should not bother with?

    is teatard supposed to be ironic, given that apparently they understand (and you don't) that food subsidies in this country serve to keep prices higher?

    This in the very first post of this thread.

    Ah, yes, the pledge...So, regardless if it has any real or meaningful effect, they did what they said and now they're off the hook? Got it.
    Well I can see where a politician doing what he said he would do, is a concept that liberals are not familiar with. It's something they have never seen before.

    redress
    The bill was passed in 2003. Who controlled the house and senate and the presidency? This is typical republican strategy part 3, blame everything you do on democrats.
    Oh gawd I follow some your posts … you talk of blaming others? I suggest you go read your own posts , according to you if it wasn't Bush's fault .. it's okay to do now because Bush did it .
    .if you would like I can get and post them for you ? kinda like the pot calling the kettle black isn't it ??
