  •  Yes, GOP is insane. (0+ / 0-)

    Much the same way Democrats are insane about spending more to create jobs without specifics of how that will happen.

    GOP's imaginary cuts were much like the 2009 "stimulus" program's imaginary stimulus.  Except for one thing: It's always easier to find places to shovel money into than cut money out of.

    Getting to specifics to accomplish your goals is much harder than simply waving a wand and saying "Make it so".

    In that regard, the sequester is actually far more brilliant than our legislators: It makes relatively small cuts across the boards.  It provides a chance to see who screams loudest and make adjustments accordingly.  Not ideal, but probably smarter than any of these yahoos can manage.

      Oh, how shocking, dino the phoney independent trolls another thread to take pot shots at Democrats in an attempt to equate them with Republicans.
      The stimulus wasn't imaginary, just ask the CBO or many others who actually know what they're talking about, and who don't spend so much time trolling and insulting most of the members of this website.  
      What's the matter, can't get attention anywhere else?  

      Lacking in self awareness as you are, you probably don't see the humor in accusing others of allegedly not providing specifics, while most of your comments boil down to "Dems suck, progressives suck, you're all the same as Republicans and conservatives".  Wash, rinse, repeat.  
      I know I know, you're right because you say you are.

        come back out.

        Easier to just make things up out of thin air than to think for moment.  

        I get it.
