With Republicans prepping to pass a massive, and massively ill-advised, tax cut, perhaps we should consider a voice of reason. Not that the Republicans will.
Senate approves budget in crucial step forward for Republican tax cuts
A very significant quote from this story:
"At the same time, by agreeing to the massive tax cut, Senate Republicans have officially moved the party far away from its promised goal of ensuring that the tax plan would not add to the deficit. The White House and House Republicans had vowed that the tax cuts would be offset with new revenue from the elimination of certain deductions, but that is no longer the GOP’s goal. Instead, they have abandoned long-standing party orthodoxy of deficit reduction and are seeking a political win after months of frustration on Capitol Hill."
So, as we see, yet again the Congressional Republicans are basically empty-headed empty suits. And that's bad for the citizens of the United States.
