The narrative that House Republicans are making of recent events.

The graphic at the homepage of Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the California Republican who serves as majority whip in the House, lists a series of events — most recently the VA’s “secret wait lists, the fudging of the backlogs at veterans’ hospitals that President Barack Obama this week denounced as a “cooking of the books.” It quotes Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, saying that the administration learned of the allegations emerging from a VA hospital from the media.

It moves on to the  “Healhcare.gov gitches” — which we’ll assume is a spoof on errors right before one’s eyes.

It covers the National Security Agency’s surveillance of foreign leaders, the Internal Revenue Service’s screening of political organizations, the Department of Justice’s wire-tapping of reporters, the wasted government investment in Solyndra and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms’ “Fast and Furious” gun-running sting.

“The election of President Obama ushered in a new era of big government and with it a renewed flurry of mismanagement,” McCarthy’s narrative says. “Good as the intentions of government programs may be, the years and decades of waste, fraud, abuse, scandal, ineptitude, and obscurity mean big government can’t be trusted with its good intentions.”
