|Congressional Republicans are heading into the 2012 election by doubling down on largess to their two favorite special interest groups -- the richest of the rich, and the military. In an attempt to show both of those constituents how important they are, the House GOP will be concocting a plan to back out of their agreement over deficit spending by allowing defense spending cuts, and asking the poor to take the hit instead. The bills drawn up by the House are a stark reminder of what exactly the Republican party would do if they had full control over the legislature, and no checks on their power. A reminder of who would benefit, and who is likely to pay the price for it.|
