Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) had a little fun with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) complaint that the Republican spending proposal would cut funding for a popular cowboy poetry festival in his home state.
In a Senate floor speech on Tuesday, Reid said that a "mean-spirited" Republican bill that would slash $57 billion in spending for the remainder of the fiscal year would cut the annual festival.
"Had that program not been around, the tens of thousands of people who
come there every year would not exist," Reid said of the National Endowment for the Arts, which stands to be cut.
Way out on the prairie, to a rustler named Harry / Bein’ broke ain’t no reason to sweat ... http://ht.ly/4aO5f
Just sit in yer’ barn, spin a rhythmic yarn / And you’ll pay down the national debt! http://ht.ly/4aOdF
Yee haw, congressman.
