HOw much credibility do the democrat mouthpieces have in deficit hawk status.

    Cheesewars has another inane poll up, so I want to replace it with one of mine.

    But it really is an interesting question for everyone.

    After nearly doubling the debt over the last two years, the Democrats are suddenly being deficit hawks about the Bush Tax cuts. How credible do you regard this argument in light of what they have done since they came in.

    My personal arguments are that the tax cuts are stimulative and more effective than Democrat stimulus. YMMV of course. The tax cuts go to productive areas of the economy, rather than to areas that are just spending for its own sake, and recycling government money into politicly favored groups.

    Tax cuts also have the positive of restricting government inanity. Always a positive.

    Also, at current rates, in addition to be stimulative, lower rates do produce higher income. what with substation effects, folks dropping out of the economy because the game is not worth the candle, and the reality that profits mean that this is an area more business wants to get into, and more profits mean more jobs.

    anyway, to the poll.

    Cheesewars has been put on notice that his polls bug me a lot, and he is not going to do them with impunity any more.
