The Omaha World-Herald is Nebraska’s only state-wide newspaper. From an editorial perspective, the OWH slants reliably right. Thus, the editorial published in today’s newspaper was stunning.
Beginning with the words, “Let them eat cake,” the OWH criticizes federal lawmakers (specifically naming Rep. Lee Terry, R-Neb.,* Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb.,** Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, R-Neb.***) for refusing to give back their pay while failing to enact a budget.
As I recall Tim, the Nebraska FPD’s investigator, who lost his job after 18 years because of these folks and their cohorts, and the serious harm being suffered by the federal judiciary because of the sequester and the absence of a budget, I am delighted to see that the OWH has called these politicians out. Hypocrisy should have a cost.
