A very happy Monday to you, everyone! Today’s doubleheader features a pair which will leave you thinking. The first, called “The Budapest Agreement and Iran” shows how Republicans will contradict themselves just to make a political point – they are definitely getting quite good at doing so.
In fact, we did keep our word in Ukraine.
Interestingly, Republicans specifically stressed the importance of making sure Iran knows we always keep our word. That was five weeks before they instructed Iran not to trust Presidential agreements.”

The second podcast, entitled “How Will the Sinking Teeth of Republicans Save Retirement” has Burr musing on how he thinks Republicans will further cut and damage integral parts of our still very-needed 80 year old social safety net.
In his own words, Burr tells us, “Republicans have refused to reveal the details of their budget plans. They have learned from past experience how media analysts will focus on Social Security and Medicare cuts.
But Tom Price, who heads the Budget committee, let his guard down a little at a recent conservative conclave. He used the usual audience tested euphemisms, but the direction Republicans in Congress are taking was clear.
Get ready for a bumpy ride.”
