    MSNBS actually never talks about Benghazi unless its to say “what a waste of time” or as Hilary says “What difference does it make?”.

    I thought the libs get real angry when their prez lies to them?

    I’m confused. I thought I heard testimony that the Benghazi report went into a staff meeting about terrorists but came out about spontaneous demonstration.

    For fiscal 2013, the GOP-controlled House proposed spending $1.934 billion for the State Department’s Worldwide Security Protection program — well below the $2.15 billion requested by the Obama administration. House Republicans cut the administration’s request for embassy security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and $331 million in fiscal 2012. (Negotiations with the Democrat-controlled Senate restored about $88 million of the administration’s request.) Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security” — a charge Republicans rejected.
    .
    Ryan, Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic security positions. Under Ryan’s budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to embassy security.

    “As I have said many times, I take responsibility. And nobody is more committed to getting this right. I am determined to leave the State Department and our country safer, stronger, and more secure,” Hillary Clinton said. “For me, it’s personal.”

    “For fiscal 2013, the GOP-controlled House proposed”

    The Democrats in the Senate and the President had to agree to all of what you posted for what you posted to become law. It’s a little specious for Maddow to put all of the blame on only 1/3 of the people responsible.

    The House is Republican. The Senate is Democratic. The President is Democratic. Only 1/3 of this “triumvirate” cannot make law. It took all three to make those cuts.
