Frum on the Conservative "Deficit Hawk Republicans'" Double Standards
"I’ve never heard anyone derided as a “Republican in Name Only” for opposing the closing of redundant military bases, or for supporting Medicaid reimbursement formulas that favor the South and the West at the expense of the Northeast and California, or for favoring lavish FEMA reconstruction projects after hurricanes and tornadoes. Why not apply equal latitude to other regional concerns?" - David Frum noting the double standard self-declared budget hawks impose on their dwindling northeastern Republican counterparts.
