Let the waffling begin. Yeah, see, tax cuts don't add to the deficit, because it's only spending that adds to the deficit, not anything like, say, cutting your revenue source without cutting spending at the same time. No, nothing like that. Hey conservatives (ie. the Tea Party) who promised to hold peoples' feet to the fire, I'm waiting. And to paraphrase someone, how's that "can you hear us know" chanty thing working so far (and keep in mind, the conservatives aren't even in power yet). But, as I see the news, the Tea Party isn't so much against the tax cuts as they're against more "stimulus" spending (actually mostly more tax cuts) and extended unemployment. Which reminds me, heard a news report last week how one Tea Party activist is angry about any (and I mean any) unemployment benefits ('cause it indoctrinates people to not work and expect to be on the dole) even though when he was unemployed for 6 months last year he made damn sure he got his checks from unemployment (I believe it was as I was dial flipping in Virginia and landed on Rush). Irony, surely thou art dead.
