Flipping back and forth between the West Wing and the California debates, I caught something really funny in the debate. Tom McClintock listed about 18.5 billion in cuts off the top of his head, acknowledging that spending is up 38% while revenues had only increased 25% in recent years. Everyone, even Cruz, noted the deficit was not rocket science, and that they were simply spending more than they were taking in and it had to stop.
Everyone, that is, except for Camejo, the green party candidate, whose solution was to ‘raise taxes on the top 1% and spend more money on education.’
I almost choked to death on key lime pie I was laughing so hard. What alternate universe spawns the Green party?
I disagree with everything the Green PArty and Peter Camejo stand for but he is the only one in the debate except McClintock who had some sort of policy. Davis and Bustamonte would behave just like Camejo but won’t admit it. Arnold hasn’t worked out a policy yet and Arianna Huffington is left of Camejo and incoherent to boot.
