So the Republicans have made their picks, and not surprisingly, they're all nutbar right-wingers:
For the House, it's Jeb Hensarling, Dave Camp, and Fred Upton. For the Senate, it's Jon Kyl, Rob Portman, and Pat Toomey.
So how nutty are they? Well, Toomey wants to privatize social security, Henserling called Social Security "a cruel ponzi scheme", Camp wants higher taxes on the poor, and Portman wants to get rid of the Department of Education.
Yep. Jon Kyl is the "not intended to be a factual statement" guy, too.
Meanwhile, Reid's sent in John Kerry, Patty Murray, and Max "DINO" Baucus. All of whom are more than willing to carve up "entitlements" that they have no personal need for or familiarity with.
So, yeah, America's fucked. I just wish it had a President. That'd be nice, wouldn't it?
