    One thing I like about the Republican leadership is they're so callous, inept, dishonest, and arrogant, that some new scandal or failure seems to come up every week.

    Federal officials secretly schemed to limit payouts for sick and dying nuclear weapons workers, including thousands from the Rocky Flats plant outside Denver, newly released documents show.

    The officials responsible for helping those workers went behind their boss's back, called on White House officials for help and tried to hide their efforts, according to internal e-mails and memos obtained by a congressional committee and posted on its Web site.

    They also wanted to get the White House to override scientific decisions granting compensation and pack the program's advisory board with members less sympathetic to workers.

    Labor officials say the plans were never carried out, and they deny trying to hide them.

    So the workers say they were getting screwed by Federal officaials (read bureaucrats. to get the problem solved they went behing their bosses back (more bureaucrats) and called a Republican President.

    So Patters if the republicans were the meanies how come the went around their bosses back to contact the head pubbie????

    BTW the problems predate 2000 this is a bureaucratic problem not a political one except to a partisan like you.
