or in health care or in lots of other stuff

we are seeing that already in the actions the Republicans are taking in the House of Representatives.

Perhaps we need to be able to see it pretty clearly, their attitude towards government, and how government serves the people.

Below the fold you will find a list.  It came across a veterans list to which I subscribe -  yep, I'm one of those, a military veteran, USMC.  

It is courtesy of the Minority Leader's Office

Take a look at how Republicans propose to cut the deficit:

Okay, folks.   There is so much that can be done with this list.

We already know the Republicans are anti-women's rights.  On that these two stand out:

·         Maternal and Child Health Block Grants  -$210M

·         Family Planning  -$327M

They are clearly against any government involvement with health, seen when one also notes theses:
·         Poison Control Centers  -$27M

·         CDC   -$755M

·         NIH   -$1B

·         Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services   -$96M

and these:
·         Community Health Centers  -$1.3B

·         Maternal and Child Health Block Grants  -$210M

I have little commentary to add.

Only this.

If you don't think elections make a difference,

if you are EVER tempted to say it doesn't make any difference which party is elected

pull out this list

go through it again

and remind yourself if nothing else why friends don't let friends vote Republican.

Now let's start to work right now and do something about this, before the government we need is destroyed.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
