    Dumb and dumber farm bill spin

    I love the way Cantor and the rest of the crew try to spin their loss. Cantor whining about the Dems not voting for a bill that wasn't gonna pass anyway.

    Dumb and dumber farm bill spin
    by Jed Lewison Jun 21, 2013 8:15am PDT
    The Republican spin following yesterday's farm bill failure was a sight to behold. Mostly, we focused on the absurd argument coming from Eric Cantor's office that Democrats should get the blame for Republican House's inability to pass a farm bill that included massive cuts to food stamps.

    --snip--

    Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi called the GOP's handling of the farm bill "amateur hour." She was being kind.

    It's a bad joke at this time--if the GOP fringe festival that is running the country right now wants to do-in Boner ---Julius Caesar style--they should just get on with it.

    Re: Dumb and dumber farm bill spin

    Cantor was also bedwetting about how the food stamp program should be slashed even more...never mind that the food stamp program should have nothing to do with a Farm Bill that rewards agri-corporations billions for NOT growing certain crops, at the expense of the poor who depend on food stamps. But guess who slipped the food stamp program into this bill like a thief in the night? Whatever happened to doing away with earmarks and sneakily attaching pet causes to unrelated bills in hopes that they'll be passed under the radar? Republicans talk about Congress having a spending problem but that doesn't count when it's a republican doing the spending. Just like spending $50 billion on an immigration program that will change nothing. They should be using that $50 billion to repay the Social Security fund that all of them stole from over the years.

    Smug Eric Cantor always points the finger of blame at someone else other than himself and his worthless colleagues. The republican infighting will only get worse now that the extremists are in control.

    One can only hope.

    Unfortunately for the country to hemorrhage from emergency to emergency BUT at least republicans make themselves weaker with ever ignorant statement from Cantor and failure from Boehner.

    When--not if-- the currency collapses, it will be a great victory for Democrat party; the culmination of all their battles to avoid any cuts in spending.

    The US currency is backed by one simple concept. The ability to tax the population. If the fringe element right ever get control of the government and dismantle this ability, the US currency will go into a death spiral. So Benvolio, are you feeling lucky? I said...are you feeling lucky!?

    We have gone far beyond our ability to tax our way to solvency, paticularly since a smaller and smaller percentage pay income taxes.

    Yeah, I know, fewer and fewer rich pay taxes... How many billions of dollars have they stolen from government through the loopholes THEY installed in the laws?

    When Eisenhower was president, if one made over $2.5 million, you were in the 91% tax bracket. Somehow or other, wealth was accrued successfully.



    Eisenhower got us out of the recession through massive spending. Interstate Highway system, NASA. A real republican. A real job builder. This really getting monotonous.

    This simply demonstrates that no tax raise can every be high enough to satisfy the Democrat party. If we gave into the 91% bracket they would lie awake nights obsessing over ways to grab that last 9%.
    No, Eisenhower did not get us out of the recession. JFK was elected and pushed through a TAX DECREASE, and that ended the recession.

    Read the source. JFK urged the tax decrease before he died, and when it was enacted after his assassination, it pulled us out of the recession.

    I just figured you out. Your obsession with Obama and the Liberals is you make over that $2.5 million and don't want your taxes to go up.
