    40 Economists Say The GOP Has Abandoned Economic Reality | ThinkProgress

    Before the Conservadopes scream "HATE SITE" and plug their fingers, note the first fucking sentence in the article:

    So now economists are starting to see the same things as everyone else outside the Limbaugh/Beck/Faux News bubble. And I think even Republicans in Congress are starting to wake up to reality. Boehner pretty much told the GOP members of Congress that told him to SHUT THE GOVERNMENT DOWN over Obamacare to fuck off recently too. Orin Hatch wants to compromise on the tax issue.

    Grover and the Tea Party's days of power are quickly coming to an end because after two years, America's independent voters are starting to see how off their tits the GOP is.

    You mean we really can't pay off debt by cutting taxes?

    The rights response will be to claim that all 40 economists are bias, Obama Supporters or hate America

    Oh really, so they put forth a plan to pay down the debt.

    Or they are just DNC mouth pieces.

    Which is it?

    Are these 40 economists part of that group of economists that never seem to get it right. The weatherman is more accurate.

    You can't even get them to admit that tax cuts are no different than spending.

    You mean that if you give enough money to rich people it really doesn't trickle down?

    Can't pay it off by spending more either (Stimulus)

    Cut Taxes: Republicans
    Increase Taxes: Democrats

    Cut Spending: Neither Party

    You see the little game they play with us?
