Thursday Afternoon C-SPAN Follies

Clearly embarrassed by his inability to say anything intelligent on Meet The Press this past Sunday, Rep. Pete Sessions is right now leading a parade of Republicans to the House floor demanding an end to some kind of Amtrak subsidy.  They’re all breaking their arms patting themselves on the back for their fiscal rectitude.

Total savings to be garnered from this courageous proposal?  One billion dollars.  Over ten years.  Why, that’s a whopping 0.002% of the federal budget!

Who says Republicans don’t have any big ideas?
