Doomsday Conservatives: Too Many Hormones, Too Little Plan

There is no Republican tax reform plan. In fact, in the last election Mitt Romney conspicuously and repeatedly refused to offer anything but the haziest outline of a tax plan. He would not specify which deductions he'd eliminate, or by how much, or for whom exactly.

There is no Republican plan to get rid of corporate welfare or taxpayer subsidies. Yes, Republicans grumble (rightly) against the Obama green-energy subsidies. But they have not got any kind of agreed definition of what counts as a give-away.

Nor is there a Republican plan for Social Security and Medicare. In 2005, the Republican majority in the House and Senate refused even to schedule a vote on President Bush's proposals for Social Security reform.

As for Medicare, the closest thing there is to a plan, other than the gesture of raising the eligibility age (which will only serve to shift 65 and 66 year olds into other government programs under the Affordable Care Act), is the Ryan plan, which goes into effect a decade hence. It's an odd kind of emergency that is so urgent it requires immediate enactment of a remedy, on penalty of national bankruptcy, but can wait ten years for the remedy to go into effect.

If Ryan-style Medicare reform can wait until 2023, why can't Ryan-style Medicare reform wait until there's a Republican president and Congress with a mandate to enact it, rather than use extreme and almost extra-constitutional measures to force such a reform on a president and Senate with a mandate to oppose it?

The short answer is: because there is no real plan, only a high-hormone demand to do something, anything, to defy and reject the results of the 2012 election. Once again: tactical radicalism, strategic nihilism.

the 'argument' was about a POS professional instigator from FOX.
but we can all see how you would want to make it about something else with your daily hypocritical postings that you never acknowledge when you're caught out.
how about you just ignore me? i'm about fed up with your holier than thou BS.
Crowder was only a contributor to Fox News.

But what the heck difference does that make?

The unions were tearing down a big tent with people still in it who supported the governor and right-to-work.

Destroying people's freedom to take an opposing stand against any issue and getting punched in the face for trying to help prevent that is okay with you?

Please say no.

You are a tad bit dense. You said a soldier should have know how to avoid being killed. I gave a list of wars that showed well over a million military casualties in various wars. You indicated you thought those who defend our country should have known how to avoid death. There is a big difference between you and them, you are a coward, members of our military are not.

Definition of ghost writer, one who writes for and in the name of the author. president nobama's ghost writer was selected by him. If any of the information was incorrect the president could deny it. You will note to date he has not.

You make a perfect Democrat. You're dumb as a box of rocks and live in fantasy land. Then you throw in a little immaturity at the end. Do you live in a rat trap?
