GOP Out-of-Touch Quote of the Day

The GOP out-of-touch quote of the day goes to Rep. Jeff Flake:

Representative Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican who opposed the measure, complained the figure was $24 billion more than the party agreed to spend when it passed a 2012 budget in April.

“Why in the world would we add $24 billion?” Flake asked. “It’s a disaster.”

Exactly, Mr. Flake. There was a disaster.
