We Did It!

Well, not just the readers of this blog, but everyone on's mailing list as well. That is, we stopped the House Republicans from voting yesterday to cut $50 billion out of programs that help folks like you and me and then retain $70 billion in tax cuts that went mostly to the very rich. Turns out that the Republican Congresscritters in the South are also those whose districts have taken the hardest hits from Katrina, Rita, and now Wilma. The last thing they want to do is to face their constituents next year after having voted against aid for them this year. Oh, and speaking of Katrina, one of Mike Brown's former employees over at FEMA has released some e-mails showing that FEMA personnel were begging him to act proactively -- but he blew them off.
