The GOPers are setting up the card table. They’re already barking: “Step right up! A game of skill and intelligence! Step right up! A rising tide lifts all boats! Step right up for massive economic growth rates!”
We’ve been playing this game for 35 years. Come on now, America, don’t do it. Every time we play this game we end up poorer, more anxious and deeper in debt. Every time.
The GOPers like to say that they are the party of fiscal responsibility. Total bullshit. The GOPers will hog-wild debt spend on tax cuts for the rich and corporate entities (and tax cuts are a spending ‘investment’), and they will happily debt spend on the military and wars. Happily– and then, when the debt rises because of this irresponsible spending the GOPers will clutch their pearls and declare: “Oh My God! Look how the liberals have indebted our children! We must cut food stamps and educational benefits and HUD and meals on wheels, and Head Start, and…” It never fails. This is their game of three card monte. Again and again we’ve been getting suckered by this scam. Stop it America. Just stop it.
