    "Republicans believe that the USA is hungering for deficit reduction above all else, even if it means slashing healthcare and services for the poor..."

    I don't this is quite right. The only type of deficit reduction the GOP favors (apart from cutting the already-small budgets of regulatory agencies) is slashing health care and other services for the poor, and they think that this is popular in and of itself, which it isn't.

      Republicans know they can mask it by playing to old racist/welfare-state mentalities (i.e. "the gubmint is taking money from hard-working white people and giving it to lazy brown people").

      I think those lines of attack have an expiration date, though.  At least, I hope!
