    So, this is Socialism?

    Interesting piece by Dana Milbank on Republican’s priorities now that the economy is on the rebound.


    Now, after a long economic winter, green shoots are everywhere: The stock market is booming, housing prices are rebounding and mortgage providers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, long demonized by Republicans, are returning profits to the Treasury. Job growth has accelerated and consumer confidence has reached its highest level in almost six years. Health-care cost increases are slowing, Medicare’s prospects are improving — in part because of President Obama’s health-care reforms — and gasoline prices are forecast to decline. Long-term fiscal problems remain, but the federal deficit is shrinking, putting off Washington’s debt-ceiling standoff until late fall.

    Yet House Republicans have shelved a serious legislative agenda this year in favor of 24/7 investigations.

    This is a real vote getter for the GOP in 2014
