WASHINGTON — Setting a collision course with Democrats that could drag out for months, House Republicans on Thursday unveiled plans to cut federal money for job training, heating subsidies and grants to better-performing schools.It does come down to that bake sale thing. Those Republican students who sold cupcakes at different rates for different races. All this did, and all it could ever do, was upset or provoke liberals. The same is true with this budget plan. It lacks any seriousness. It will not cut the deficit, it will not create jobs, it will do nothing but upset or provoke liberals. This is the substance of the GOP. Their politics is a frat prank that never grows old for them.
The draft measure for labor, health and education programs also seeks to block implementation of President Barack Obama's signature health care law, cut off federal funds for National Public Radio and Planned Parenthood, and reduce eligibility for grants for low-income college students.
