Brendan Skwire reports on a ridiculous exchange he had with Bob Casey’s office. Read the whole thing, here’s a sample:
I was taken aback by the statement (that the wealthy create jobs, so they deserve a tax cut) given to me by a young woman named Maddy, who had no response when I asked her “why does Pennsylvania have 10% unemployment if tax cuts for the rich work so well? Why are we in an economic crisis that’s been described as the worst since the Great Depression? Bush’s job creation record, which was predicated on tax cuts stimulating the economy was the worst since the 1940s.”
Maddy told me that she didn’t want to argue about it. “You don’t want to argue?” I asked. “Then why do you work in politics?”
I hate to pick on some hapless Senate staffer, but this is typical to me of today’s political climate: shut up and accept whatever policies our Galtian overlords convinced David Gergen to support.
