Senator McCain is blasted by House Republicans for calling for fiscal responsibility

Yesterday, in a speach before a thinktank, Republican Senator McCain called for fiscal responsibility.

Never have we considered taxcuts while our young men and women were sacrificing themselves overseas --- certainly not taxcuts benefitting primarily our wealthiest citizens, McCain pointed out. Republicans used to stand for fiscal responsibility, but seemingly no longer do, McCain commented.

He was promptly blased by fellow Republican House speaker Dennis Hastard.

The Republican chair of the House Armed Services commitee also blasted Republican Senators for trying to investigate the prison scandal.

While the Republicans in the Senate reluctantly assume a spirit of bi-paritsanship out of growing concern over the Administration's handling of Iraq, Republicans in the House blast them for not blindly following the Administration's flag.
