GOP Welches On Deal, Takes Away $ From Sick, Poor Kids

¡SNAP!

That’s the headline we should see if Republicans are successful in the so-called budget recission deal:

The White House says the clawback is mostly aimed at unobligated funds, such as those leftovers in accounts for defunct programs. Scrapping unobligated funds does not reduce the deficit.

Some of the funds being targeted, however, would reduce expenditures…

And what would that include?

The White House says the CHIP funds are from two accounts: one in which the spending authorization has already lapsed, and another that has excess funds that are not expected to be used.

“None of the CHIP programs that have just been reauthorized would be impacted in any way should this rescissions package pass,” Mulvaney told reporters at the Capitol on Tuesday.

And you BELIEVED MICK MULVANEY!!?

“These Republican rescissions show the hypocrisy of a GOP Congress that insists on tight budgets for children and families while handing enormous, unpaid-for giveaways to corporations and the wealthiest,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Monday night.

The press of course is not lookin at the impact on families and children, they are looking at the drama:

Democrats cried foul at the notion of canceling recently approved 2018 spending from a bipartisan deal, saying it would breach the agreement and poison the well for future negotiations.

I think our pal and fellow Scissorhead Bluegal is gonna cry. The press might be talking about wells and whatnot, but the Republicans are actually plotting to take away children’s healthcare.

    You are right about that. And meanwhile it becomes more clear every day that the minute Trump became president he arranged to sell access to the office for big bucks.

      I doubt he waited until he got elected.

      He’s not known for patience, or integrity.

    New GOP motto same as old GOP motto: “We will protect the children till they are born. Then they can drop dead!”

      They’re going to need some cannon fodder of other people’s kids for the glorious liberation of Iran. After that, sure, let them die.

    So of course the Republifreaks want it both ways: “See we’re cutting out wasteful spending. Oh, you say those cuts hurt people, but these are unused funds, lapsed authorizations, presto chango nothing to see here!”

    The Republican Playbook:
    Loot the Treasury
    Give the money to the already wealthiest people in history.
    Wail about how the Treasury has been looted.
    Close down programs for the poor because the Treasury has been looted
    Offer thoughts at prayers to the poor
    Raise taxes on the poor in order to replenish the Treasury
    Accept huge donations from the wealthiest people in history.
    rinse
    repeat
