"Moral Disaster of Monumental Proportion Reconciliation Act"
First Harry Reid says "enougha this freakin' crap" and sends the senate into closed session (and the Republicans into paroxysms) and now Frank Lautenberg has introduced an amendment to de-Orwell the latest Republican bill.
Bursting with pride, Scott Shields writes: "Frank Lautenberg introduced an amendment to change the name of the Republicans' 'Deficit Reduction Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 2005' to the 'Moral Disaster of Monumental Proportion Reconciliation Act.'"
Lautenberg comments on the amendment: "Let's call this bill what it is -- a moral disaster... This bill would close the door of opportunity and cut critical services to the poor, elderly, sick and hungry."
Though the amendment has little chance of passing, that's not the point. The point is, it's the Grand Unification Theory we've been yearning for: marrying the moral imperative to some good ol' fashioned grandstanding. Hale-fucking-lujah. (MyDD)
