babym3Obama is everywhere and the Repugnants have no idea what to do about it. Their response to his dare about their presenting an alternative budget was to introduce a budget without any numbers. Isn’t that one of the reasons we are in such a mess today?  Bush’ budgets left out the costs of two wars. Hello?  Is war free? While their budget was very skimpy on details, it does include one major policy proposal: a huge tax cut for the wealthy. Under the Republican plan, the top marginal tax rate would be slashed from 35 to 25 percent, facilitating a dramatic transfer of wealth up the economic scale. Anyone making more than a $100,000 would pay the top rate; those under would pay 10 percent. How surprising – a HUGE tax cut for the wealthiest of Americans. Gasp!

–  My great escape is going to the movies or going to a zoo. Yesterday I chose a zoo. The Bronx Zoo always has surprises and yesterday was no exception.  Not only did I get to see their six week old baby giraffe, Margaret Abigail (featured above), I got to see the tiniest Collared Lemur baby –  Photo below).  A collective awwwwwwwwwww can be heard across the land.

–  Here is how Rachel dissected this move by the Repugnants:

–  In case we forgot what it was like only a few months ago.  My favorite is ‘”It’s clearly a budget. It’s got a lot of numbers in it.” May 5, 2000
