    •  They actually love government programs. (5+ / 0-)

      That's never been the real issue. As my favorite law school professor never tired of pointing out, what it's really about is whose ox is getting gored.

      The World's Mitt Romneys love government programs that line their own pockets, like accelerated depreciation and loss carryovers and depletion allowances and the rest. But if the money is going to the 99% it's wasteful and inefficient, even though, when that happens, people spend it all right away and the whole economy improves, including for rich folks.
