Grappling on the ‘fiscal cliff’
Entrenched politicians out of touch with reality
Alternate title: What's the matter with Kansas Senator Pat Roberts?
So the Washington solution to our spending crisis is — drumroll — more spending. Who knew?Swing by The Washington Times to read it all. And as always, thanks for sharing it on Facebook, Twitter and everywhere else the cool kids hang out.
Mr. Roberts added insult to injury by calling this $600 billion tax hike “tax relief.” This is what happens when you spend three decades in Washington: Up becomes down, down becomes up and a $600 billion increased tax burden on 77 percent of households becomes “tax relief.” What’s more, Mr. Roberts also claimed he would “now focus on spending cuts.” Sure, and Lindsay Lohan will now focus on sobriety. Why didn’t he focus on the $330 billion in increased spending and just vote no?
We’re Kansans. We’re Americans. We want our steaks hot, our beers cold and our politicians — temporary.
