Kevin Drum on the federal budget just passed:
Attaboy! Reduce the deficit $10 billion by cutting back on healthcare for the poor, and then turn around and increase the deficit $106 billion by approving additional tax cuts for the rich. Moral values, baby, moral values.
Better yet, Tom DeLay says it best, "This is the budget the American people voted for when they returned a Republican House, a Republican Senate and a Republican president to the White House last November." He's right, the public gets what they deserve.

UPDATE: In addition, Drum does a good job of summing up the ground laid for the coming GOP implosion.
