Spend, Spend, Spend

It’s all they friggin know how to do. Notice how not once is there any mention of how these programs would be paid for, and the word “deficit” does not appear.

My personal favorite:

New hire tax credit: Give businesses a tax credit if they hire jobless workers. That was the idea behind the HIRE Act, a $13 billion piece of legislation that was in place for much of 2010 but has since expired.

And it worked so well, didn’t it?

    If at first you don’t succeed, spend, spend again.

    Interesting how tax cuts have to be “paid for” but when it comes to spending for programs its full speed ahead, screw the deficit.
