With the election still over a week away, and last I checked not decided, the liberals in Congress can taste victory and are already dreaming aloud about pushing their radical agenda…
Bawney Fwanks says he wants to cut the military by 25% and John Kerry is planning “The New Deal II.”
And notice the language both radicals coop. First Fwanks:
NEW BEDFORD — After the November election, Democrats will push for a second economic stimulus package that includes money for the states‘ stalled infrastructure projects, along with help paying for healthcare expenses, food stamps and extended unemployment benefits, U.S. Rep. Barney Frank said Thursday.
In a meeting with the editorial board of The Standard-Times, Rep. Frank, D-Mass., also called for a 25 percent cut in military spending, saying the Pentagon has to start choosing from its many weapons programs, and that upper-income taxpayers are going to see an increase in what they are asked to pay.
Now listen to John Kerry’s liberal dreams…
John Kerry wants “New Deal II”
The nation’s battered economy needs an old-fashioned “Rooseveltian lift” of regulatory reforms and government spending on the infrastructure, clean energy and other sectors, U.S. Sen. John Kerry said yesterday.
Kerry, facing a re-election challenge from Republican Jeff Beatty, rejected GOP calls for more tax rebates to stimulate the economy, as was done last spring.
“I am for a stimulus package. I am not for a stimulus package that just sends out checks,” said Kerry at a Boston Herald editorial meeting yesterday.
Instead, Kerry said the nation needs to spend more in areas that will both help the economy in the short run and long run – such as on roads and bridges, clean energy initiatives and life sciences.
Both men are now calling increased government spending a “stimulus package.” And this is the difference between liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans.
Republicans call a “stimulus package” where they send you back a portion of the money you’ve sent to Washington so you can spend it to kick start the economy.
Liberals call a “stimulus package” an expansion of the welfare state. Bawney Fwanks thinks giving out more food stamps is a “stimulus package.”
It’s the standard liberal playbook, take money away from the people who earn it and “spread the wealth around” while destroying the nation’s military. -Because that worked so well during the Carter Administration.
