More about credit card conservatives
The next time we elect an MBA president, let's make sure he actually knows how to run a business. It seems that when we get a Republican president with a Republican dominated Congress we get these horrible budget deficits that grow and grow with compounding interest.
What happened to that surplus in 2000? It was squandered on tax cuts and war. Gee, that surplus would have come in handy on September 11, 2001 when we were attacked by al-Qaeda. By the way, why isn't Osama bin Ladin in custody? Or maybe we could have used it to finance health care reform for everyone so more Americans can have health care coverage. Or used it to save social security, instead of turning social security into a government driven 401K plan.
But no, the Republicans answer to everything is a tax cut! Hey, college graduates don't want to become preschool teachers because it only pays $10/hour. The solution: give the people who make $100/hr a tax cut. The number of Americans without health insurance is increasing, let's give Kenny-boy a tax cut! We were attacked by a transnational terrorist group with no ties to any state sponsorship - Tax cuts! So how are we going to pay for the recovery from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita? By repealing the Estate tax or as the credit card conservatives like to call it, the death tax
Fiscal conservativism? That's a myth.
