Republican economic nonsense uber alles

Filed in National by on February 8, 2013

I’m so glad that our upright centrist Democrats hopped on the GOP’s economic bullshit train.

The federal deficit will drop to less than $1 trillion for the first time in five years, but massive spending cuts that have improved the budget outlook are also slowing the economy, according to a report released Tuesday by the Congressional Budget office.

The bet still stands, by the way. When is some brave Carney staffer going to try and convert me to the gospel of austerity? Where are the confident and cocky wingnuts of my youth?

    They are having a lot of trouble processing this news because they still won’t admit there have been spending cuts and the deficit is shrinking. Their narrative is still “out-of-control spending.”

    Maybe that’s because Federal spending is still out of control.

    Republicans and Tom Carper will call Federal spending out of control until the last granny is dead.

    Little known fact: the deficit hawk and debt parrot are seasonal. They only appear when a D is in the White House.
