Today In Dumb and Desperate

The GOP has cast aside what little shred of factoid they may have thrown up in the past, to full on fecal slinging for whatever might stick with the dumbest of the dumb.

Another case in point
of seeking bipartisan cover for their kill medicare with The  Granny Dumpster Diving Act To Reform Medicare, AKA, the Ryan Budget.

Now, Republicans are pushing to box in Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY), chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, as a former supporter of the “premium support” concept.

Republican staffers on the powerful Ways & Means Committee noted that Israel voted for the concept in 2003, in a later-jettisoned House version of the prescription drug benefit that included provisions requiring Medicare to compete with private plans, albeit not on the scale of the Ryan plan.

Got That?. They are traveling back in time to 2003, for a  vote on a jettisoned bill by a single democrat under the primary auspice of prescription drug coverage for medicare, whereby Rep Israel voted no on the current Ryan "let's kill medicare budget" bill. There aren't clown shoes big enough for those clown feets.
