Emboldened by their sense of blind eyed ideology, Republicans in the senate are trying to block the passage of the stimulus bill because it “costs too much”.
But let’s put this into perspective.
Republicans had eight years to balance budgets, lower spending and reduce the size of the deficit.
But they didn’t.
Instead they did the opposite, spending money like a Hollywood trophy wife addicted to prada shoes and gucci bags.
But instead of Prada or Gucci, they spent trillions of dollars whoring themselves out to pharmaceutical lobbyists, Haliburton and the same CEO’s begging small business owners and single mothers to bail them out.
Fuck that. You can’t double the deficit bankrolling special interests and then say there’s no money “leftover” to spend on insuring 50 million uninsured Americans or fixing our crumbling infrastructure.
