Fact Checker Notes Dems Are Lying Crap Weasels On CDC/NIH Cuts

Of course, Glenn Kessler doesn’t specifically call them lying crap weasels, but does give them 4 Pinocchio’s

On many levels, this line of attack is absurd.

Obama’s Republican predecessor oversaw big increases in public-health sector spending, and both Democrats and Republicans in recent years have broadly supported efforts to rein in federal spending. Sequestration resulted from a bipartisan agreement. In some years, Congress has allocated more money for NIH and CDC than the Obama administration requested. Meanwhile, contrary to the suggestion of the DCCC ad, there never was a specific vote on funding to prevent Ebola.

There’s no doubt that spending has been cut, or at least failed to keep pace with inflation, but the fingerprints of both parties are on the knives. This blame game earns Four Pinocchios.

Interestingly, it was President Bush who really started kicking up the funding for the CDC and NIH (National Institute of Health). The funding leveled off in 2006,  and,  surprise, Democrats, who are whining now, didn’t bother kicking it up during the 4 years they fully controlled Congress.

In fact, something Kessler notes in passing, and I noted here, the recent budgets from Obama (which Democrats utterly refuse to vote on nowadays), recommended cuts to the CDC and NIH. Furthermore, let’s not forget that it was Obama who came up with the idea of Sequestration.

But, hey, this is the Democrat Party. For all their self absorbed utterances that they are the party of compassion, of looking forward, of being oh so nice, they’re nothing more than a bunch of sleazeball jerks. Sure, politics is a nasty business, but these people make the rhetoric emanating from the Westboro Baptist Church and ISIS look tame in comparison. They are simply nasty people.
