“Basically their plan was one that you had heard before: If we cut more taxes, everybody is going to be okay.” Obama said, and continued to joke about tax cuts.
“You need to make a restaurant reservation, you don’t need the new iPhone — here’s a tax cut for that,” Obama said to the crowd, imitating Republicans. “You want to learn a new language? Try a tax cut. Tax cut to lose a few extra pounds. Whatever ails you.”
I’m not sure I can remember a politician ever belittling the concept of less burdensome government in such a direct and sarcastic manner. But what about the reverse? If Republicans think tax cuts are a cure-all, can’t it be said that Democrats always believe more spending will solve our problems?
Gee, who was it who proposed fixing our economy with a $800 billion “stimulus” spending bill, the largest single spending bill ever passed in the history of the nation?
