Nita Lowey Decries Senseless Budget Cuts She Voted for 2 Years Ago.

I get emails from Congresswoman Nita Lowey whose capacity to repudiate her prior votes never ceases to amaze me. Last month, I posted about an email she sent out containing a pretentious attack on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (a law she had voted in favor of).  Today, I got another email, this one with a heading: "Flight Delays and the Senseless, Across-the-Board Budget Cuts".  In the body of the email, twice again, she calls the budget cuts effected by the sequestration "senseless".  So I went back and checked her vote on the sequester, the Budget Control Act of 2011, and, no surprise, she voted "yea".  In fact, not only did she vote to impose those "senseless" cuts, she contemporaneously issued a statement titled "Statement Supporting Debt Limit Deal".  Somehow the word "senseless" was missing from her description of the law back then.

You know those credit card commercials that end with the word "Priceless"?  I think someone should do a similar commercial listing all the times Nita Lowey was for something before she was against it, and end with the word "Senseless".
