Reagan: Morning After in America

Feb 4, 2011 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: motherjones.com

Why the Gipper's tax-cut guru is aghast at today's GOP

Moments before the new Republican House was to be sworn in, Rep. Tom Price , the head of the House Republican Policy Committee and the chamber's fifth-ranking GOPer, was standing in the ornate Speaker's Lobby of the Capitol, near a roaring fire.

In the celebratory hustle and bustle—new members rushing to pick up lapel pins and license plates, their kids noisily exploring the building—a reporter approached Price with a question: How could he reconcile the GOP's pledge to tame the deficit with its decision to dodge budget calculations about the costs of tax cuts and repealing health care reform? Without missing a beat, Price replied, "It doesn't cost the government money to decrease taxes. When you decrease taxes, as President Kennedy proved, as Reagan proved, you increase revenue to the federal government."

No need to dodge, repub sheep allow the hypocritical stances on spending and blatant campaign lies.

We've seen it already on the Patriot Act story. None of the typical topix rightwing sheep asked how it's paid for. Its a repub bill, so they allow it.

This is how the sheep found themselves, the so call repubs who hate American hating Muslims, liberating the radical Shia Muslims sect from Sunni Sect using borrowed TRILLION and American lives.

If Repub suggest it, the topix sheep agree...and jam heads in the sand.

I promise you one question you won't be seeing on these boards from the right. "How are bills from the right, including tax cut to big oil and Wall Street, paid for?

...repub bills must be free of charge. Like Muslim liberation efforts over the past decade being paid for by oil....while your oil prices go up.

Redefining rape as "only by force" creates JOBS JOBS JOBS...and cuts spending.

The Constitution doesn't allow mandating insurance, but it does allow feds to mandate what a woman can do with her own body.

Thank God Rand doesn't agree.

When will the real libertarians take over that lost party?
