Ending deficits by cutting taxes = stupidity

Just read a great piece by David Stockman, who directed the Office of Management and Budget under Reagan.

He takes Republicans to the woodshed for their idiotic idea to extend tax cuts to the richest people in America.

He notes what others have been saying for years: you can't have it all.

Yet, that's what Republicans have been promoting for decades now. Even Dick Cheney said that "deficits don't matter."

Teabaggers and other Republicans are somehow now concerned about government spending.

Too late. The genie is out of the bottle.

And, if that genie is Robin Williams from the movie "Aladdin," we're all going to need earplugs to keep all that whining to a dull roar.
