The GOP Can’t Restrain Spending

May 22nd, 2008 | by Paul Merda |

For four years our GOP brethern had total power in DC and what did they do with it?  They bashed homosexuals.  Did they cut spending?  Did they cut welfare programs?  Did they keep government out of our lives?  Of course not, all they did was increase spending while tax revenues were down because they slashed taxes for the wealthiest in our Nation.  What has been their fruits?  A deficit that’s increasing everyday.  So much for the GOP lie that they are fiscally conservative.  So why did you vote Republican again?  If it was to bash homos and spend money like a spoiled rich kid, you got what you voted for. 

Republicans used to argue that keeping taxes down was the only way to restrain spending. But as taxes have been cut under President Bush, spending has soared by 29 percent (after adjustment for inflation). Meanwhile, a $236 billion budget surplus has morphed into a deficit of more than $400 billion

    Indeed! What have they done over the last 8 years? Created a police state, made us loathed throughout the world, sat back as oil prices soar, watched as New Orleans drowned, bashed gays…dang the list goes on and on.

    Compassionate? For corporations. Conservative? For conserving corporate profits. Moral? For stopping congress for the brain dead and joking while NOLA cursed and drowned. Majority? Not.Ever.Again. Who can afford it?

    Though I still can’t help but think that our ignorant brethern will be duped by their meaningless slogans one day again and elect another group of morons to office. Its tough being so cynical ;-)

    Okay that was weird. Just because someone acts compassionate and claims they are compassionate- it doesn’t mean they are. They just say it with a snake oil salesman’s smile.
    I bet if Bush were the Governor of NOLA he still would have been blamed for not taking the proper precautions. I’m just speculating here.

    Noooo, but if you are the president and you go to NOLA and have a bunch of earth moving equipment set up by the busted levee, have a press conference and then HAVE THE EQUIPMENT REMOVED you aren’t compassionite either, just opportunistic.

    Since the conservative ascendancy in Washington, many of these same people have stopped praising states’ rights and have begun burying them — not to protect citizens’ rights, but to take them away. The Bush administration and its Congressional allies have helped their friends in industry by enacting weak environmental, health and consumer regulations — and arguing that they wipe out more robust state protections.

    The 2003 Medicare law was a disturbing case in point. It blocked states from regulating most abuse by private Medicare insurance plans — an area the administration is not properly policing.
