BUDGET IMPASSE SIGNALS A SHIFT IN G.O.P.’S FOCUS

Acceptance of Deep Cuts in Military Surprises the White House, by Jonathan Weisman and Ashley Parker

WASHINGTON–“…lawmakers most keenly dedicated to shrinking the size of government are now more dominant than the bloc committed foremost to a robust national defense, particularly in the House…

‘Fiscal questions trump defense in a way they never would after 9/11,’ said Representative Tom Cole, Republican of Oklahoma. ┬áBut the war in Iraq is over. Troops are coming home from Afghanistan, and we want to secure the cuts.’

Fiscal questions are now more important in the Republican Party.

A trump card in Bridge is stronger than other cards and can take the trick unless another higher trump card is played.

    Hi great blog! Does running a blog like this require a
    lot of work? I have very little expertise in programming but I
    had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or tips for
    new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic nevertheless I simply wanted to ask.

    Many thanks!
