Republicans: Deficit Spend for Rich not Poor

I smell a worse person in the world award in Senator Kyl’s near future…

The jackass says :

Top Senate Republican Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) insisted on Sunday that Congress should extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans regardless of their impact on the deficit, even as he and other Republicans are blocking unemployment insurance extensions over deficit concerns.

“[Y]ou should never raise taxes in order to cut taxes,” said the Arizona Senator during an appearance on Fox News Sunday. “Surely Congress has the authority, and it would be right to — if we decide we want to cut taxes to spur the economy, not to have to raise taxes in order to offset those costs. You do need to offset the cost of increased spending, and that’s what Republicans object to. But you should never have to offset cost of a deliberate decision to reduce tax rates on Americans.”

So we can’t spend $30 million to help the unemployed but we can spend $687 billion on tax cuts for wealthy Americans. This is your Republican party America…

If anyone wanted a prime example of someone placing their ideology over reality this is one if I ever saw it.
