  •  Exactly. Budget deficit is code for (7+ / 0-)

    Slashing programs that help people other than the already wealthy and their businesses.  It is code for cutting everyone else's spending and never having to raise taxes on the rich.  It is code for making us a third-world country, in short.

    Too bad most of the GOP foot soldiers don't understand this, or else they are willing to see their own programs cut if it means cutting poorer (or less white) people's programs even more.

    The scientific uncertainty doesn't mean that climate change isn't actually happening.

      •  the mere suggestion of such a thing (0+ / 0-)

        angers Boss Limbaugh, whose rath is to be avoided by reporters (and, it seems, quite a few Democratic politicians) at all costs!
