(Fake Moderate) Michael Castle Talks a Big Game

Here we go again...

The Kaiser Family Foundation is reporting that "moderate" congressional Republicans are attempting to exert some influence over the out of control, rightwing fanatics that control Congress.

Daily Health Policy Report

House Republicans on Thursday began discussions about the fiscal year 2007 House budget resolution, with both moderates and conservatives "demanding concessions before they will agree" to vote in favor of the resolution next week, CQ Today reports (Dennis, CQ Today, 3/30). The House budget resolution, approved on Wednesday by the House Budget Committee, includes $6.8 billion in spending reductions for entitlement programs but excludes reductions for Medicare and Medicaid. In addition, the House budget resolution includes an $873 billion cap on discretionary spending requested by President Bush. Under the discretionary spending cap, spending for health and other nonsecurity programs would remain at about FY 2006 levels (Kaiser Daily Health Policy Report, 3/30). Reps. Michael Castle (R-Del.) and Nancy Johnson (R-Conn.) and other moderate Republicans (sic) have called for an increase in the discretionary spending cap to ensure that health and other nonsecurity programs receive additional funds (CQ Today, 3/30).

House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said that he has discussed the issue with Johnson and that he believes he can address the concerns raised by moderates without an increase in the discretionary spending cap (Cohn, CongressDaily, 3/30). (snip) Boehner in a closed meeting with House Republicans on Wednesday "stressed the need for all GOP lawmakers to come together and support the budget once it's completed, even if they didn't get all the provisions they wanted" because the House budget resolution "will attract no Democratic votes and would need near-unanimous Republican support to pass,"


I think we all know what that last part means. When the votes are counted up, look for (Fake Moderate) Michael Castle to fall in line with the radical right-wingers. Take the poll.

Does Castle even know what a joke these "moderate" stories make him look like?
Yes, but it is a calculated choice.
No, he is clueless.

1 - I didn't see the words "tough" or "smart" or "dangerously incompetent" in there at all.

2 - You have to work in the "Vote for Beau Biden because Ferris Wharton is a Republican, and even though he's the most qualified person ever to run for AG, he's a Republican, so he must be bad."

I'm really worried about your ability to stay on message with your talking points.
 
"Vote for Beau Biden because Ferris Wharton is a Republican, and even though he's the most qualified person ever to run for AG, he's a Republican, so he must be bad."

You said it!

By the way - how did you vote in the poll?
 
even though he's the most qualified person ever to run for AG

Vast experience successfully prosecuting psychopathic murderers, which as you know is our greatest crime problem here in Delaware. You can hardly leave the house without seeing them leering at you from behind their hockey masks.

Oh, also great success in prosecuting political corruption. Why, just look at how the Gordberry case - oh wait, that was a mistrial. Not the prosecution's fault, of course! OK then, just look at all the other political corruption and white-collar crime he's tried. Why there's... um, and... ahh, I'll get back to you on that.
