I'm stealing a minute of time while my youngest grandson, Emmett the Amazing, naps.

Tea party favorite Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., has unveiled a plan for cutting $400 billion in federal spending that includes freezing Veterans Affairs Department health care spending and cutting veterans’ disability benefits.Maybe Bachmann hasn't heard there's a war on, a couple of 'em actually.
Her proposed VA budget cuts would account for $4.5 billion of the savings included in the plan, posted on her official House of Representatives website.
