"Report: Debt will swell under top GOP hopefuls’ tax plans"

Postby rrnate » Fri Feb 24, 2012 10:52 am

"The national debt would balloon under tax policies championed by three of the four major Republican candidates for president, according to an independent analysis of tax and spending proposals so far offered by the campaigns."

(Full story here - http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/report-debt-will-swell-under-top-gop-hopefuls-tax-plans/2012/02/22/gIQAzAJvUR_story.html)

So, this is pretty interesting, if not exactly unexpected; essentially all of the potential front-runners for the GOP Presidential nod plan to increase our debt, despite their long-standing claims that another four years of an Obama administration will...uh...do just that.

Ron Paul ("the lively elfin conscience of the Constitution") will actually reduce debt, but as he's also kind of crazy, will not ever get to be a flavor of the month like these other guys.

No doubt, when they respond, it'll be something along the lines of "jargon, jargon...say, what about abortion?".

C'mon, they are thinking bigger than that. The most concrete GOP policy for 2012 is Total Vagina Management.
