Compassionate conservatism is an oxymoron, part 375
Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Tom Coburn (R-OK) just blocked a bill to extend federal programs for homeless vets with children. The bill was sponsored by my Senator, Patty Murray (D-WA), and came out of committee with bipartisan support. What the hell is wrong with the Republican leadership? I guess tax cuts for the rich and deficits are more important than kids and vets to them. Someone needs to ask Dino Rossi, Murray's republican challenger, whether he sides with the Republican leadership or the kids and vets.
