Idiots of a feather flock together/Tiahrt/Bush

It was several years ago that Rep Todd Tiahrt interefeared in the affairs of Washington DC, by passes legislation to prevent needle exchange programs. He said it “sent the wrong message.” Of course the message it sends today is that people with drug problems don’t deserve to live.
Now President George Bush is pushing to bring back the needle-exchange ban. If anyone has proven to be callous to the lives of others, it’s Bush. He had a record number of executions as governor and he has sent a lot of men to their deaths in Iraq.
According to The Wichita Eagle:

Bush picks up where Tiahrt left off
PostedAbout 11 hours ago
The meddling federal measure about needle-exchange programs is undead — the one once pushed by Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard, and declared dead last year. President Bush’s proposed 2009 budget revives the measure, which prohibits the District of Columbia from using its own money to fund such programs. “That Mr. Bush would do this in a budget that will take effect after he’s left Washington strikes us as gratuitous and shortsighted,” editorialized the Washington Post.

Hi - I am trying to start a grassroots email campaign aimed at getting people to contact their reps about the coal-fired power plant legislation. I would love to email you a copy so you could pass it on. Thanks!

I think I need to start an anit-Pyle blog!
