Republicans Contradict Their Own Principles

Republicans, incoming and already in house and senate, are promising to end bankruptcy of government. Senator John Cornyn of Texas said, "we have a certain philosophical principles that we believe in, and we think that those principles are superior to those our friends across the isle." So what is their core, number 1 principle? Deal with the Bush era tax cuts first, or nothing else will get passed! All 42 republican senators signed a letter to majority leader Harry Reid saying this. But day before yesterday, senate rejected to open debate for Don't Ask Don't Tell. Senate also failed to provide health benefits to 9/11 responders. No republican senator even brought-up the topic for debate. Wyoming senator Mike Enzi explained in a Sunday op-ed that his real concern was "proper oversight of money already spent on 9/11 workers." But in May of 2008, he voted for carelessly written to bill to fund troops in Iraq. Actually, people who were fighting in Iraq were 9/11 responders, may be not the first, but second or the third.
