The house of representatives screws the American people and then head home to gloat about it

This is so disgusting that I almost don't know what to say

There is so much insanity here, I don't know where to begin. On it's way out for the Christmas break, the house stayed up all night attaching evil amendments to important bills and cutting critical health and social programs.

I don't even know if I can actually comment on each thing it is just leaves me speechless. I'll just list the crap.

Drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge was passed after it was added to a critical defense budget bill

The GOP is crowing about cutting the deficit by $40 billion which is a drop in the bucket not only of our national debt, but even in the bucket of the yearly deficit under President Bush. In that $40 billion they are so proud about cutting:
Medicare cut by $6.4 billion
Medicaid cut by $4.8 billion
Student loans raised to a fixed 6.8% instead of variable lower rates saving $13 Billion

So, in this big budget savings bill, they manage not only to screw over our past (cutting aid to senior citizens), but also our future (making student loans more expensive). I just can't find the words to express how much these people hate the people they serve.
