Trillion Dollar Baby

"Guest post" by Patrick McHenry, "Crossposted" from RSC BLOG:

Raising Taxes Is An Accomplishment?

So now we've seen the Democrats' Mother of All Tax Hikes. But Washington has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. The federal government is set to spend more money next year than the GDP of every country on Earth other than Japan. The Democrats have already voted to raise taxes by more than $100 billion this year, so it’s not surprising that their idea of tax reform simply means higher taxes. The surprising part is that they’ll tell you with a straight face that a trillion dollar tax hike is a major accomplishment.

Trillion dollars, trillion dollars, now where have I heard that number before?. If it's a spending problem it's a Republican spending problem. Get out of Iraq, find Bin Laden then, get out of Afghanistan and come home unless you want to spend another trillion on Iran as a prelude to WWIV and a permanent siege of legitimate government services.

can't even lie right.

Poor Li'l Patty

had to talk about keeping a straight face while spewing out this tripe and bile while keeping a straight face himself.
Hypocrisy, meet Patty. Patty, meet the mirror.

I wish I could Photoshop

I do all my stuff in Paint (free) and PowerPoint. I guess together they add up to a half-baked approximation of something that might approximate a beginner using Photoshop. Barely.

then that's really scary.

even I can use Photoshop - after a fashion.

The dead will speak to us....

Drama Queen, I believe that the blood our Country has spilt will stain our souls, so to speak, and taint our future endeavors until we properly account for the dead. It might be decades before our citizens recognize it but until we admit our culpability we cannot properly atone for the deaths of so many folks whose only crime was living above a pool of oil. No rest either until we account for our own dead and ask their families to forgive our Country for sending their daughters, sons, dads and moms off to be killed for the vilest of reasons.

Take him at his word that it's a spending problem

The Democrats for the FY 2009 Budget should report out a budget with a budget surplus that does several things:
- Cuts DOD funds substantially to offset the cost of the war
- Eliminates all Plum Book positions beyond the Cabinet officers
- Eliminates all subsidies to corporations
- Stops funding for Iraq
- Lowers middle class taxes by raising the brackets for exemption
- Indexes the alternative minimum tax and resets the minimum income to which it applies upward
- Simplifies the tax code by removing the deductions that keep high-priced accountants wealthy

The watch the Republicans scream that you can't cut spending on their pet programs.
