Like hope, but different

Scared, stupid old man...

And here's why I really dislike Grandpa Pander... He's now FOR the tax cuts he was against in 2001 and 2003. Usually it's funny to watch someone compromise their last shred of integrity. However, this is just sad.

``We need to make the Bush tax cuts permanent. We need to abolish the alternative minimum tax,'' he said last week in Wichita, Kansas. ``We need to have a corporate tax cut from 35 to at least 25 percent.'' The cost of those proposals would exceed $5 trillion over 10 years, according to the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities in Washington. ... On the stump, McCain seems uncomfortable with economic prescriptions, preferring to talk about the war on terror. In December, he told the Boston Globe that economics ``is not something I've understood as well as I should.''

The scariest thing? When they started talking about a stimulus package last month, his initial reaction was to propose a spending cut at the Federal level which would have actually SLOWED growth, further damaging the economy.

Whichever Democrat faces this douche needs to call his proposals what they are... bullshit. Supply side economics didn't work for Reagan and they certainly haven't worked for Bush. Not to mention that they are a massive failure for those of us in the bottom 90% of earners.
