Abby Zimet

After ranting and posturing for months about cutting spending and killing earmarks, the House this week will consider a bill that will shred services to poor people - including Head Start, nutrition programs for infants and heating subsidies this cold winter. But wait. What's this $450 million for military toys the military doesn't even want? And it would go to two cities in Ohio, where John Boehner grew up and now rules? Huh? Hypocrisy, much? These people are shameless.
