:twisted: As promised, Republicans in the House tackle discretionary spending by going through the budget "line by line":

Rep. Cantor: So the plan is to switch to generic paper towels in the House washrooms. Any objections?
Rep. Bachmann: Yes!
Rep. Cantor: [Sigh] Congresswoman Bachmann...you object?
Rep. Bachmann: Don’t you take away my faux-linen towels! I'm a member of Congress! I deserve faux-linen towels! Linen! Linen! Linen! I want linen!!!
Rep. Boehner: What the hell is goin' on in here?
Rep. Cantor: Morning, Mr. Speaker. We're just going line-by-line through the budget. Congresswoman Bachmann feels that switching to generic-brand paper towels in the House washroom is beneath her dignity.
Rep. Bachmann: It's un-American! Gooood bless Americaaaaa...!!!
Rep. Boehner: Okay, calm down and stop that god-awful singing. Damn, I wish I could smoke in here.
Rep. Cantor: Sir, if we switch to generic, we can save roughly 300 dollars a year in discretionary spending. That ain't chump change.
Rep. Bachmann: So I'm a chump now, am I? Mr. Speaker---he's treading on me!!!
Rep. Boehner: Okay okay okay...look, here's what we'll do. We'll go with Brawny, all right? It's thicker, but less expensive than your precious faux-linen. Got it?
Rep. Cantor: I guess so.
Rep. Bachmann: If I must. But I gotta clear it with Sean Hannity first.
Rep. Boehner: Fine. Now don’t make me hafta come in here again.

[ker-SLAM!]

Rep. Bachmann: Okay, one line down, 28 million to go. What's Line Two?
Rep. Cantor: Line two is...oh, no. Napkins in the House cafeteria.
Rep. Bachmann: Linen! Linen! Linen! I want LINEN!!!

At Least 13 New Republican Members Of Congress Hire Corporate Lobbyists To Manage Their Office

At the link, you can see the names....These Republican lawmakers, many of whom cast themselves as insurgents, are linking their professional decisions into the corporate establishment of influence peddling. Congressional chiefs of staff are often in charge of helping members make pivotal decisions, like which positions to take on public debates, how to vote on pieces of legislation, and of course, how to use your votes to raise money for your re-election...
