    Welcome to the economic fantasy world of the left. . . .

    The GOP's dangerous arrogance
    By Robert Shrum
    posted on June 2, 2011, at 3:24 PM
    The Week


    Excerpt:

    The GOP, driven by invincible ignorance or cynical design – and perhaps both – is working overtime to trash the recovery with budget cuts that would drain demand from the economy – or a debt ceiling vote that could trigger a financial collapse equal to 2008, or perhaps unpredictably graver.​

    Translation: more government spending, that's the ticket!

    The Rest of Shrum's Delusional Rant

    Partisan rant? You just said: "tax cuts for the wealthy"

    Every tax cut ever proposed by Republicans, always across the board, is a tax cut for the rich according to you people. :lol:

    Low taxes = economic growth. How old you are? Seven? We have nearly 25 years of historically unprecedented economic growth and job creation at historically low tax rates under our belt since 1982. :cuckoo:

    If you don't know that, I can't help you.

    Lefty's mantra: tax and spend.

    You cant prove tax cuts for the wealthy creat jobs can you?

    They dont is why you cant prove it.

    Now think about the fact that the republicans refused to sign off on a bill that allowed all the tax cuts of the Bush bill without the ones for the top 1%.


    In other words they were willing to blow everything up to save a tax cut for ONLY the top bracket.


    The republican party doesnt give a rats ass about you

    The only fact at work is that you are an utter and complete moron without a shred of education or knowledge of macro-economics. The nonsense you posit is laughable, infantile. You offer no known system nor theory, neither Chicago, Austrian nor Keynesian. You spout half-baked socialism that you picked up from reading hate sites and watching fools on MSNBC, which you don't really comprehend. Your only goal is to shit on the GOP, for fear they will cut your SSI.

    Seriously, you're a mess.
