I don’t have the constitution to watch the bobble heads, but I hope it is clear now that the Republicans are not serious about the debt and the deficit. It might even be obvious enough for the beltway bobbleheads to figure it out.
Oh, they are serious about cutting social programs and gutting the safety net, but that is because they are serious about gutting social programs and cutting the safety net- not about deficit reduction. Deficits don’t matter to these guys- they are just horseshit they throw out there to get their way. After exploding the budget during the Bush years, they’ve done nothing but concern troll about the mess they made, and used it to attempt to achieve more of their goals. That is it.
But the deficit and the debt? They don’t care about it and never have.
