Do you remember that one? It provided rotting red meat for liberals for months. Republicans are so “obstructionist” that they wouldn’t even consider $10 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax hikes.
Well, here’s the question: would liberals consider $10 in tax increases for every $1 in spending cuts?
The answer is no.
Would liberals consider $20 in tax hikes for every $1 in spending cuts?
Well, surely they would consider $30 in tax hikes for every $1 in spending cuts?
Absolutely not. And you’re a racist to think they ought to.
Okay, how about $40 in tax increases for just $1 in spending cuts? Would that be okay?
Well, you’re finally getting warm:
Fiscal Cliff Deal: $1 in Spending Cuts for Every $41 in Tax Increases
by Matthew Boyle
31 Dec 2012
According to the Congressional Budget Office, the last-minute fiscal cliff deal reached by congressional leaders and President Barack Obama cuts only $15 billion in spending while increasing tax revenues by $620 billion—a 41:1 ratio of tax increases to spending cuts. When Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush increased taxes in return for spending cuts—cuts that never ultimately came—they did so at ratios of 1:3 and 1:2. “In 1982, President Reagan was promised $3 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax hikes,” Americans for Tax Reform says of those two incidents. “The tax hikes went through, but the spending cuts did not materialize. President Reagan later said that signing onto this deal was the biggest mistake of his presidency. “In 1990, President George H.W. Bush agreed to $2 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax hikes. The tax hikes went through, and we are still paying them today. Not a single penny of the promised spending cuts actually happened.”
That’s right, kids. The Democrat Party is MORE THAN four times more “obstructionist” than the Republicans even by the Democrats own incredibly demagogic standard. They insisted upon and were willing to send America off the cliff to get a 41:1 ratio of tax increases to spending cuts.
And if you are a Democrat, you are a quintessential, abject hypocrite by definition. Because liberalism equals “hypocrisy,” and you cannot even possibly be a liberal without walking through the lie that is your life as a massive hypocrite.
Republicans have twice played this game in modern political history, with both Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush falling for Democrats’ promises to enact spending cuts if the Republican presidents would enact tax hikes. And both times the Democrats proved that they were abject liars and hypocrites by breaking their words after getting what they wanted.
The bottom line is this: the liberal establishment thought it was insane that Republicans would not believe their lies again and fall into the new trap of their empty rhetoric, but 41:1 going the opposite direction – more than four times more insane by any definition of insantiy, mind you – is not insane at all.
You cannot negotiate with Democrats because history has proven over and over again that Democrats are dishonest liars. It’s the “Lucy and the football thing” that plays out over and over again. Only every time the Democrats yank away the football after promising that this time they’re really hold it, America gets weaker and closer to complete financial collapse.
Democrats bait and switch with rhetoric all the damn time. The Democrat Party is the party that dishonestly says it is “investing” money rather than be honest enough to admit they’re spending it, such that I could “invest” in a Ferrari and three prostitutes for the weekend and pat myself on the back for “investing.” Let me ask you something: if you’re completely broke, but decide to go shopping for clothes anyway, and you tell yourself that you’re going to spend $1,000 on your credit card, but instead “only” end up spending $985, did you “cut” your spending? No, you dumbass; you went nuts and spent $985 you shouldn’t have spent; you didn’t “cut” anything. Your debts went UP, not down, you big giant dumbass. That’s the game Democrats play year after year with their dishonest promises of “spending cuts.” They have NEVER cut spending in their deplorable lives; instead, they try to tell us that if they projected their out-of-control spending by 10 percent a year but they only increase their spending beyond previous spending by say 9%, that they somehow “cut” spending.
Do you know what an actual “spending cut” would look like, you who aren’t so evil and blind that you voted for Obama? It would look like the US budget getting smaller and smaller rather than bigger and bigger. It would look like the government NOT having trillion-plus dollar deficits every single year of Obama’s God damn America presidency, that’s what it would look like.
It wouln’t look like this, in other words.
And that doesn’t include the $500 billion financial black hole of megadeath that Democrats have imposed through their evil relationship with unions just on California alone. If you add up the debt of blue states in unfunded liabilities being handed out to unions, and America is a headless chicken walking.
Democrats claim they’ll collect $620 billion more in revenue because of their tax hikes. You watch; they won’t. Because they are breathtakingly stupid people who refuse to pull their heads out of their anuses long enough to realize that when they raise tax rates on the rich, the rich raise the prices of their goods and services to recoup the losses of Marxist, class-warring Democrats and the rich shelter their money. But every time America has cut its tax rates, we have actually INCREASED our income tax revenues – with the rich paying a higher overall share of the tax burden as they are encouraged to work harder and invest more because they are allowed to keep more of what they earn.
41:1. From the party that mocked the other side for refusing to consider 10:1 after being repeatedly lied to by the party that just demanded 41:1 or else they’d destroy America.
Let me simply state the truth: Democrats are bad people. They are bad people who feel entitled to other people’s money. They are bad people who simply do not believe in any kind of personal responsibility. They are bad people who trust in massive human government while they mock those who put their trust in God. They are bad people who at the very least are forcing the next generation to shoulder an impossible burden while they spend that generation’s wages right now. And ultimately, they are bad people who either want our children to starve and our old people to die of medical abandonment, or who are simply so demon-possessed and so deranged that they simply cannot consider the obvious financial consequences of their incredibly reckless and immoral actions. Because that is what is going to happen due to their wicked policies when America collapses due to their wicked spending.
America has become a truly sick and depraved culture, and we are about to go the way of the Dodo bird.
I believe that it’s too late for America. In voting for Obama and for Democrat Party this November, we have fatally wounded ourselves. And while many conservatives are hoping for a “2010-style” tea party revolution in which Republicans make historic landslide gains, I believe that will be far too little, far too late. The American people have crossed the moral threshold to vote for Romans chapter one as evil becomes good and good becomes evil. And Democrats just proved yet again that after $222 trillion in out-of-control spending which is going up by nearly a trillion every single month, they haven’t yet even begun to spend until every single American is crushed under the wheels of their slick evil.
Why isn’t America mentioned in the Bible? Because when it mattered the most (NOW!), you were too damned depraved and too damn wicked to do the right thing. And by the time the Antichrist comes, we won’t be able to do anything but worship him even more than we worship Obama and take his damn mark so we can burn in hell for a trillion times a trillion-trillion-trillion millennia.
Meanwhile, Obama’s tax-cheating Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner is now the “$13.6 trillion dollar man” after spending that morally and logically insane sum in just four years of God damn America. While Obama’s Federal Reserve has been essentially creating so many trillions of dollars out of thin air that it is way past impossible to calculate with QE1, QE2, Operation Twist and now the aptly named “QE Forever.” What they have actually done is rob senior citizens and those who tried to save blind by stealing the value of their savings out from under their very noses.
Why does the Antichrist come according to the Book of Revelation? You ought to know, Democrats; because you just voted to not only elect but re-elect his useful idiot.
Hal Lindsey once famously popularized the phrase, “the Great Snatch” to describe the soon-coming Rapture of all true Christian believers. I’ve been calling it “the Great Bailout,” because I am hoping that Jesus is going to bail Christians out of the mess that secular humanist Democrats have created before we experience the consequences of their massive – and massively godless – disaster.
