3 Things That Are Pretty Much the Same

When Republicans passed a tax cut plan for the super rich and huge corporations, they claimed that deficits weren’t really important anymore, that the economic stimulus would be more than enough to make up for the over $1 trillion cost. But then when the price tag just wouldn’t go away, they change their story and said that —€“ after they passed the tax cut plan — it would be time to cut spending. Naturally, the spending that they wanted to cut were from Democratic Party programs, not things that they care about like the bloated defense budget.

  1. “Fool me once: shame on you; fool me twice: shame on me”

    The GOP faithful are on … what? “Fool me ten times” ? A hundred?

    Saint Raygun cut taxes for the rich, increased spending, piled up the biggest deficit in history and left office in a recession. Bush Baby cut taxes for the rich, increased spending, piled up the biggest deficit in history and left office in a recession. Donnie Dumpf cut taxes for the rich, increased spending a-a-a-and … maybe this time it will be different.

    • I think the quote actually goes, “There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.” 😉
