The GOP and Taxes
*Sigh* I really need to get off my butt and switch parties. The GOP is just bat-shit crazy.
So the GOP is making a firm push to make the Bush Taxes cuts permanent. This will add 3.7 Trillion to the deficit over 10 years.
How the hell does that make sense? Neither of these two sides wants to cut spending. The GOP loves spending on the military and the Dems on their social programs. Why are we making the hole we have dug ourselves bigger?
The bottom line is, the GOP thinks if we cut taxes low enough that somehow all the Dems social programs will go away, but magically what they like to spend will mostly stay the same.
In the meantime you have millonaires asking for their taxes to be raised.
Now some of that is politics of course, but if Warren Buffett is saying to raise the rich’s taxes you have a long fight to convince me otherwise.
The GOP has taken their ideas too far.
