It’s always fascinating to see how one side views the other in politics. Scrolling through my inbox last night, I noticed that Republicans had a very different conception of the House Democrats’ 100 hour plan, both substantively and rhetorically. They’ve even renamed the key provisions.
The Dems “Implementing the 9/11 Commission Recommendations,”–under consideration today in the House–became the GOP’s “Not Fully Implementing the 9/11 Commission Recommendations.”
“The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007,” sponsored by Democrat George Miller and scheduled for debate tomorrow, transformed into the GOP’s “Minimum Wage Increase Without Assistance for Small Business.”
The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act = The Destruction of Human Embryos for Research.
The Medicare Prescription Drug Price Negotiation Act = Government “Negotiated” Drug Prices.
No word yet on what they’re calling the Democratic plans to cut student loan rates in half and roll back tax breaks for oil companies. How about “Welfare for College Students” and “Tax Increase for Texas.”
