I’D HATE TO SEE A MODERATE REPUBLICAN
Steven Taylor is a bit bemused by this one:
U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., on Friday blasted President Bush and his “radical” administration for attempting to dismantle the “central pillars of progress in our country during the 20th century.”
Clinton, in an interview with two reporters, said she had become convinced the Republican administration wants “to undo the New Deal,” the Roosevelt-era policies that ushered in Social Security and a host of other governmental assistance programs.
Considering that Bush has rammed through massive entitlement programs and a huge expansion in the federal workforce–while cutting taxes, no less–this is a bit of a stretch.
