The Republican congressional hypocrisy is unbelievable and would be a sad joke if it wasn’t so pathetically entrenched in current Washington, D.C., policymaking.

This month, Rep. Darrell Issa and his committee held a hearing allegedly to look into security lapses in regard to the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which killed four Americans.

Issa and his Tea Party cohorts, who have slashed the State Department’s security budget since 2010 by nearly half a billion dollars, need only look in the mirror and stop wasting taxpayers’ money on this circus hearing.

The fake outrage by Issa and his committee is nauseating and merely a blatant diversion in hopes we all forgot about their scorched-earth approach to budgetary allotments.

Guess what, GOP? You get what you pay for, and for all the folks out there who want small government and don’t want to pay for needed services such as security for diplomatic missions, the attack on Benghazi is just a classic example of what small government looks like up close and personal.
