The Republicans have come full circle. This is the screed posted by Republicans when 'Bubba' Clinton was president. They said the Department of Education should be abolished. Guess what happened when George W. Bush became president, Denny Hastert(R) was speaker of the House and Trent Lott(R) was Senate Majority Leader? THEY DOUBLED IT!
They then concoct a story like "We came to Washington and Washington changed us."
What a crock! They came to Washington with their core values intact and engorged themselves on the teat of government sow. Watch what people do, not what they say.
