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.
