GOP predicts "doomsday" if Obama budget passed
They really did use the word "doomsday".
Well, actually they said 'this country will go bankrupt' and 'fast road to ruin'; our liberal media translated that as "doomsday".
Where were Judd Gregg and Richard Shelby when Bush was spending $4 trillion on wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? In the Senate heartily voting 'aye', of course.
Anyway, this is a repeat of 1993, and does anyone remember what kind of economy we got after the Republicans finished whining and the United States finally got a budget?
Then I don't suppose anyone can recall that Clinton's '93 budget, which raised taxes, reduced the federal deficit significantly either.
Seriously though, let's allay their deficit concerns and raise taxes on the wealthiest 5% NOW, instead of 2011.
"Heavens to Murgatroyd! That would be Socialism!"
Continuing to provide a forum -- some would say, 'outlet' -- for the bleatings of the naysayers isn't quite as stupid as ascribing drops in the Dow to the president speaking -- indeed, lying about it --or writing an article about the Employee Free Choice Act without ever seeking a comment from a representative of labor.
If we're going to play 'point/counterpoint or 'tit-for-tat' then it needs to be a two-way-street all the time.
