All over the country, public employees are being furloughed, losing the equivalent of a months' pay, and more while the right wing noise machine grumbles about White House tours.
March 22, 2013

On the day when House Republicans once again pass a budget that kills Medicare and Social Security, perhaps it's worth taking a look at what real people are going through.

Yes, Republicans, it's about far more than White House tours. Employees losing the equivalent of a months' pay, losing their jobs, services being cut and more.

Meanwhile, I'll bet no one is reporting on the Progressive Caucus budget, which actually did create jobs while saving Medicare and Social Security.

2014 is coming. Time to retire the tea party.
