GOP deja vu

GOP DEJA VU…. Remember when House Republicans, on April Fools’ Day, released a budget with no numbers in it? And were widely mocked and ridiculed for being so fundamentally unserious about public policy that their budget was made up entirely of odd charts and vacuous text?

They haven’t learned their lesson.

House Republicans presented a four-page outline of their health care reform plan Wednesday but said they didn’t know yet how much it would cost, how they would pay for it and how many of the nearly 50 million Americans without insurance would be covered by it.

The GOP health care plan seems to have omitted a health care plan.
