The quote of the day come’s from John Cole:
I’ve said this before, and I will say it again. Unless your proposal includes a substantial increase in taxes and a substantial amount of cuts to the military budget as well as ending the farm subsidies and giveaways to big oil and big energy and big business, you can kindly just shut up about the deficit and the debt. Additionally, any cuts to entitlements need to include cuts to the CURRENT recipients, not grandfathering the boomers and then wondering why the cuts never materialize in the future.
If you aren’t going to do those things, just shut up. You aren’t serious.
As I have said here before if you serious about reducing the deficit you can:
a. Slash Medicare and Military Spending
b. Raise taxes
There is no none of the above and both will get you defeated in the next election. So when you talk about deficit reduction we all know it is just hot air.
