Republican Deficit Hypocrisy

Bruce Bartlett, 11.20.09, 12:01 AM EST

Remember the Medicare drug benefit?

The human capacity for self-delusion never ceases to amaze me, so it shouldn't surprise me that so many Republicans seem to genuinely believe that they are the party of fiscal responsibility. Perhaps at one time they were, but those days are long gone.

This fact became blindingly obvious to me six years ago this month when a Republican president and a Republican Congress enacted the Medicare drug benefit, which former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker has called "the most fiscally irresponsible piece of legislation since the 1960s."

Recall the situation in 2003. The Bush administration was already projecting the largest deficit in American history--$475 billion in fiscal year 2004, according to the July 2003 mid-session budget review. But a big election was coming up that Bush and his party were desperately fearful of losing. So they decided to win it by buying the votes of America's seniors by giving them an expensive new program to pay for their prescription drugs.

<quoted text>Then that same conclusion would mean that gangs,drugs, & violence, all profitable sources of investment income to the rich, must be doing well in all countries run by blacks. Somalians, Haiti, Nigeria, Zimbabwe. Are whites fighting over there too? Or is just that blacks can't manage anything, let alone each other? Everything they try to do, fails. But of course, they are victims and it is everyone else's fault. Just like with Obama. It is not his fault the GDP is at 1 1/2%(unlike with Reagan when it jumped up to 7%). But then with Reagan it wasn't black on black trying to fix things, was it?
1st of all slick, what did I say that had anything to do with any of those countries you rambled off? Those people are fighting over native land & who rightfully owns & should occupy what land. Has nothing to do with what is going on in america, nothing at all. 2nd of all slick, reagan years is not the same as the times we live in now. This country was building in those days. Less competition from outside sources (countries). America was leading the pack back in those days. Technology was in it's prime. Did I mention the fact reagan himself was a major war criminal & also major cocaine importer. Guns & coc, 2 very profitable sources of income exploited by the rich & used to keep the blackman down. The war on drugs in reality was a war on the blackman. Look at the statistics. The ratio of blacks/whites incarcerated is staggering. As far as blacks can't do anything right, we just have to look at sports for that. Boxing: Mike Tyson, Mohammed Ali, & the list goes on. Basketball: Micheal Jordan, & thee list goes on. Football, mostly black, again basketball mostly black, boxing mostly black, baseball multi racial, but thee best ever was a blackman. Golf Tiger Woods. Tennis: Venus and Serena Williams & Arthur Ashe. Must I keep going to prove my point? Anything we put our minds to, we're better at. Fastest man, black. Strongest man, black. & MY FAVOR, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, BLACK. THESE AIN'T NO TRENDS SLICK. JUST FACTS. Don't feel bad though, we let ya'll keep hockey.

<quoted text>I know assault rifles quite well. I know their capabilities in the wrong hands. What's wrong with owning semi-automatic hunting rifles and properly secured handguns. Let the U.S. government decide who should own assault rifles. That way common sense and public safety would be addressed.
You just proved you know nothing about guns and you don't even realize it.
