The GOP’s Top Chef Starves a Beast and Poisons a Debate

Michael Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee, this week revealed a secret Republican plan that would end up eliminating all federal farm subsidies; closing down Yellowstone and Yosemite national parks; selling off the interstate highway system; and canceling Head Start, subsidized school lunches and the entire college loan program. Steele’s stunning announcement brings the conservative strategy of “starving the beast” to a new level. Under the guise of protecting the elderly, Republicans hope to realize their dream of eliminating half a dozen Cabinet agencies, firing tens of thousands of government workers and ending government regulation as we know it.–Steven Pearlstein, Washington Post

    What a plan.Infrastructure is something we need to build up not weaken to the point of collapse.The only starving being done is his brain for logic.

    Actually, most of it is not true. This is just Pearlstein’s way of demonstrating how outlandish and exaggerated Steele’s criticisms of Democrats are. I had to read to the end to get the punchline. Good for Pearlstein!! And shame on Steele for being such a demagogue. I’m ashamed that he and I attended the same law school.
