Spotted this in an article about outrageous right wing statements (Giuliani, Dnesh D'souza, atc):


At home in Wisconsin, Walker’s leadership has been conspicuously missing. His tax cuts have left the state with a $283 million deficit that needs to be covered by midyear and a deficit projected at $2 billion for the two years beginning in July. Bloomberg News reported (http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2015-02-18/wisconsin-to-skip-debt-payments-to-make-up-for-walker-s-tax-cuts?cmpid=yhoo)this week that the state will delay $108 million in debt payments due in May — a move that will ultimately increase the amount Wisconsin has to pay.

And Walker? He was at a dinner in New York with supply-side economists this week, explaining how he can do for the nation what he did for Wisconsin.

Well, he has to practice somewhere. WI is as good a place as any!

One side cuts taxes and slending. The other increases taxes and spending. Different methods, same results.

Different methods, same results.Not even close. The difference between the results of those different methods in Minnesota and Wisconsin is fairly dramatic.

I hardly think so.

In theory. In reality at the moment one side cuts taxes and increases spending. The other increases taxes and increases spending.

He and Sara Palin would be a good team.

No, the results are quite different. Tax and spend is a lot better than borrow and spend.
