Here's an example of the hypocrisy from KR:
Mr. Obama's budget downplays some programs' true cost. For example, his vaunted new college access program is funded for five years and then disappears (on paper); the children's health insurance program drops (on paper) from $12.4 billion in 2013 to $700 million the next year. Neither will happen; the costs of both will be much higher and so will the deficits.Since when has anyone from the Bush White House given a damn about deficits? Deficits were like water boarding for you guys - necessary and certainly legal.
Well it certainly takes one to know one buddy, because my favorite hobbyhorse from the W years, the drug benefit for Medicare millionaires, was sold to the Congress BY THE BUSH WHITE HOUSE as being half as expensive as it turned out to really be.
I know this stuff sells print space for the Wall Street Journal and airtime for Fox, but Karl, dude, do you really believe it?
