OK. No one likes running the red ink meter the way this massive whatever bill just did/will do.
But let's face facts.
What we KNOW from cold hard experience is that giving Thurston and Lovey, and even me, tax cuts, DOES NOT WORK. Neither do cuts in business taxes. Higher corporate tax rates encourage REINVESTMENT and EXPANSION rather than squirrelling away shareholder gain. We also know that the last generation of Republican economic ideology, including the eight years of the GOP's best friend Bill Clinton, has skateboarded us into this disaster.
What we don't know is WILL THIS HELP? And I have no idea. The point is though, that this is 1933 and then some all over again. We need to try THINGS. If they work, fine, if they don't, scrap them. The operative word now is PRAGMATISM, not (paging John Boehner) partisanship.
The Titanic has hit the berg. I'd rather NOT be Leo.
