Herman Cian wants to raise my taxes by orders of magnitude. Of course, I realize he could win a 49-state landslide and still NEVER get his 9-9-9 thing passed. Still...
Has Cain proposed any SPENDING CUTS?
Why do all these “conservatives” have a “tax plan” and only screwball Ron Paul actually proposes massive SPENDING CUTS?
What happened to the Repukes? In the past, they used to at least LIE about wanting to cut spending—like Boehner does. Now, it’s all tax hikes with this bunch.
Reagan cut more then any other President and all the spending came right back. Spending cuts by themselves do not structurally change the system. Our tax system is structure to reward the takers and punish the givers.
As long as you allow the takers a free ride, they will always vote for those politicans promising to make other people pay for their gimmies.
Spending cuts without tax code reform are putting the cart before the horse.
I believe Cain has talked about completely abolishing the EPA and starting over with a very small group of pro-business scientists.
That there would cut a bazillion dollars out of federal (and state) budgets due to not having to file compliance reports and have people reviewing them.
Additionally, the RATs have painted the budget into such a corner that some obvious and necessary cuts (SS) are real complicated and would take a phase-in as we have heard in the past. (Bush's meager modification called "privatizing sosh-security)
Try playing the budget cutting game yourself...search "Budget Hero"
You know Bob, I only heard that term before on DU. In any case, it's offensive to me, frankly.
You mean RINOs, as real Republicans are conservative.
We need to reclaim our party, not shun it.
