The Alternative Is Unthinkable!

Oh my god, the horror of the idea that, why, I shudder to even type the words, the, the OUTRAGEOUS idea that perhaps, maybe, some wild Neanderthal wants to …cut spending?

( – Noted Tax Cheat and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told the House Small Business Committee on Wednesday that the Obama administration believes taxes on small business must increase so the administration does not have to “shrink the overall size of government programs.”

The administration’s plan to raise the tax rate on small businesses is part of its plan to raise taxes on all Americans who make more than $250,000 per year—including businesses that file taxes the same way individuals and families do.

I love this little bit as well

“And if we were to cut spending by that magnitude to do it, you’d be putting a huge additional burden on the economy, probably greater negative economic impact than that modest change in revenue,” said Noted Tax Cheat Geithner.

So this is the world they inhabit: Less debt is a huge additional burden. They want to spend their way out of debt.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: they are like alcoholics who think they can drink their way to sobriety.

And let’s all give a Swill Shout Out to Rep. Renee Ellmers (R.-N.C.).

She kicks Noted Tax Cheat Geithner’s butt.

    Well, Timmah! and his douchey boss have taken care of THIS small business (aka the fruit of ths’s creative side). I have to file my FL quarterly sales tax statement for APR-JUN by 20 JUL, on my WHOPPING sales total of…ZIP, NADA, NUTTIN’, NOT A FUCKING DIME.

    Tax THAT, assholes.

    Er….schmaybe I shouldn’t be so hasty pudding. Perchance they’ll find a way.

    Oy. Idiocy that strong is nauseating. No wonder Obama likes this cretin.

    I’ve met french fries with more sense than the Treasury Secretary. He is an insult to the form W2. Geithner should be in handcuffs, not cufflinks. He should be roommates with Bernie Madoff at the Greybar Inn.

    It’s the William Calley School of Economics. They have to destroy the economy to save it.
