This headline should alternately make your head explode, make you cry, or piss you off. Published by the Washington Post (Obama Post) last Thursday (click on the headline to be directed to the full article) it fallaciously attempts to paint the “Dem’s” as cost cutters because, I guess, their tax plan “costs” less.
ALL POLITICIANS, LAME STREAM MEDIA ELITISTS, LIBERALS, RINOS, OTHER STUPID PEOPLE should note that LETTING US KEEP THE MONEY THAT WE HAVE LEGITIMATELY EARNED SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED A FREAKIN COST!
Somehow it has become, at least in the liberal media, acceptable to assume that all money earned is the property of the “people” or government. So it would naturally follow that tax cuts (i.e. letting us keep some of the money we earn) cost the government money. THIS IS SO TWISTED!
Don’t worry your head though as bold Senator Orin Hatch came to the rescue;
“The American people deserve better than to have the President and his allies threaten to melt down our economy for what amounts to less than three days of federal spending,” said Hatch, the senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee. “With 41 consecutive months of unemployment over 8 percent, it just makes sense to extend this tax policy for a year so we can enact meaningful, pro-growth tax reform.”
First a few words for Sen. Hatch:
- You should have noted, as I have, that tax cuts shouldn’t be considered a “COST.” That’s a winning argument!
- Why only one year extension?
- Why not permanent? That would be worth fighting for.
- I think that you RINOs and your Demoncrat colleagues like this annual fight.
This is little more than an annual political play that the GOP and Democrats like to play on behalf of their constituents. They’ll make impassioned speeches. Call their foes names. Make campaign commercials. Ask for donations to stop the other side. Ask for your vote so that they can keep up the fight.
I have an idea…let’s send them all packing. The first step is to repeal the 17th Amendment and revert to what our Founding Fathers intended…for the Senate to be appointed by the state legislature. This would make sure that wishy washy senators answer to the states as the Founders intended. This would restore some balance to the states and limit the control special interests have on the federal government. Oh and there would certainly be de facto term limits.
