The GOP's worst 'cliff' myth

Dec 24, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

Perhaps the oddest of the conservative rationalizations for refusing any kind of budget compromise is the insistence that budget deals are pointless - and maybe even counterproductive - because Democrats rig them such that the taxes are real and spending cuts are illusory.

Democrats worst budget myths:

I will cut budget deficit in half: Barrack Obama 2008

Transparency......(chuckle)

Taxpayer funded jobs programs will work....(yeah, right)

It's Bush's fault....

Obamacare is NOT a tax.

The party of myths.

Clinton left a surplus!!(Like hell he did)

The same people who yap the loudest that W is stupid also claim he's behind elaborate conspiracies worthy of an omniscient Machiavelli.

Abudget is supposed to be completed by April 15, by law. The Senate Dems have not passed a budget since 2009. Obamaís 2013 budget proposal was rejected 414-0 by the House and 99-0 by the Senate.

About 50% of college grads are unemployed

Republicans have offered four budget proposals, one of which passed the House and was rejected by the Democrat controlled Senate. But of course itís the Republicanís fault. LOL

Democrat budget myths......fantasyland!

Here's a bigger myth, raise taxes on the rich and they will create jobs.

Here's another one, raise taxes on everybody and the economy will grow.

The nature of a thief is to scrutinize what others have and find a way to take it. Obviously anyone who wants to TAX someone just because they are wealthy is a thief and any Republican who goes along with such democRat Rot is a shtheaded wimp.

The nature of republicans is to care only about rich white folks & big corporations. They have no interest in the poor or people of color. They do not belong in a modern society, time for them to fade away.
