Dont say it. I already know what youre thinking. Republicans already did that in 2008. But theyre not satisfied yet. They want to cut taxes on corporations and the very wealthy. At the same time, they want to increase our military budget.
To accomplish that without creating an even larger pool of red ink, they have proposed draconian cuts.
Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, the United States Postal Service, the Department of Education, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Commerce, and the Food and Drug Administration are all on their list of targets.
And, with the national debt approaching the spending ceiling, they want to let the US default on our obligations…a decision that many economists say will cause our credit rating to plummet and likely result in the end of the dollar as the world standard of currency.
Teapublicans continue to ignore the warnings of such actions, and they refuse to listen to reason. If they take control of the White House and Congress, they threaten to follow through with their ideological (more appropriately, idiotic) plans.
I, for one, am tired of trying to reason with unreasonable people.
Maybe we should let them drive our economy and our nation off the cliff. It will be painful. But only when there is massive unemployment and long soup lines will the vast majority of voters finally realize what the GOP (Guardians Of Privilege) actually stand for.
