Yesterday, September 6th, Lawrence O’Donnell did a masterful rewrite (his term for editorial comment) on the famine in Somalia and our country’s moral duty to respond to it.
I really have nothing to add to his rewrite; it was a job well done.
On August 17, Rachel Maddow pointed to another program that would be compromised by planned Republican budget cuts: the National Nuclear Security Administration.
I can’t believe these cuts are part of the Republican deficit reduction plan, cutting aid to starving children and the reducing the budget of the agency working to keep nuclear material out of the hands of terrorists.
Here is what a real deficit reduction plan looks like.
