So they didn’t really ask me or anything but on Saturday I posted Cart before the Horse and on Sunday Meet The Press Sectary Powell said, “Right now what do they really believe in? We all believe in the Constitution, we all want lower taxes, we all want less spending, lower deficit, everything else, more freedom. But, at the same time, how do you get all of that and at the same time make sure that we are investing in our children, investing our infrastructure? How do we bring the deficit down by cutting spending, and where do we cut that spending? It’s not enough to just say, “Let’s do it.” You got to have more than slogans.”
Then later in show when President Clinton was being interviewed, he said, “They’re worried that utter–we’ve come out of this recovery to some extent, about 70 percent of our GDP growth has been regained from what was lost, but ordinary people aren’t feeling it yet and they want to see some help for ordinary people. I get that. The question is what are the specifics? What really matters is what we’re going to do. And right now they’ve elected a lot of people who are articulate and attractive, but it’s not clear what their specifics are.”
The fact is if the Republicans actually get the majority in House and Senate this year what is it going to cost you? What are they actually selling? Until they are willing to tell what and where they are going to cut they are just selling you more of the same that we just got rid of in 2006 and 2008.
