    Or so they claim.

    If they cry out this is a perfect talking point generator:  Who created these tax cuts?  Who used reconciliation to pass the tax cuts?  How much have these tax cuts added to the deficit?  And you don't want these tax cuts to lapse, because.........?

    •  It's just hard to overcome the noise. (0+ / 0-)

      You're absolutely right but if we start wasting ammunition on fiscal matters, we end up playing on their field.

      I like Obama's argument: "The question isn't big government or small government.  The issue is effective government."

      Case in point, why are all these GOPers trying to "stop the Mexicans at the border" and deport the "illegals" when in fact the customs, border enforcement, and deportation will cost a ton of money and fail to address the real problem which is identity theft and forgery?

      Full Disclosure: I am not Ben Leming. But I think he's pretty cool.

      ...when Dems are in charge. Fortunately for them, most of the public and the CMSM have short attention spans.

      The sleep of reason produces monsters.
