I must have missed that

Can Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) tell me when and where the Republicans used the codewords for Flagrent malfeasance in their new majority term?

“Allowing incoming Chairman Ryan to have unilateral power to set spending limits — instead of subjecting those limits to a vote on the floor of the House — flies in the face of promises by House Republicans to have the most transparent and honest Congress in history,”

Oh, and the Communists are pissed that the Republicans are actually going to do something to control the debt.

A proposed House rule granting new powers to the GOP chairman of the Budget Committee has sparked outrage from Democrats.

The proposed rule would allow the Budget Committee chairman to set spending ceilings for 2011 without a vote by the full House. By approving the rules package, the House would give authority to the new Budget panel chairman to set budget ceilings at a later time and his decision would not be subject to an up-or-down vote on the floor.

In practice, this would give power to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the incoming chairman of the panel, to impose deep spending cuts since spending bills cannot exceed the budget ceiling for the 2011 fiscal year.


So naturally they're ready to hand out pitchforks and torches to all the snowplow drivers that took time off from their jobs in NYC- to protest...or something. Because the Union would rather have people gie than their thugs loose any money.


But anyway, RTHT because it's nice to see the Republicans finally hitting back.
