So… let’s review.… Republican Paul Ryan Democrat Patty Murray release a budget that protects the rich (of course) and actually calls for less discretionary spending in 2014 than Ryan’s original nightmare budget that the people already rejected through a process called an election is cheered by Washington as an example of how the American People want Washington to get along and work together?
Frankly, the American people don’t really care whether Washington “getting along”. The People care about having a country that works for more than just the Koch Brothers.
It’s not a victory that politicians “worked together” to turn us into serfs, rather than doing it from their own benches.
But it’s all about slashing spending and deficit reduction, we’re told, right?! Um… wrong. Republicans calling for “spending cuts” is just their way of assuring Grover Norquiest they’re fulfilling his dream of shrinking government down to a size where they can drown it in a bathtub… like the way crooks would like to do something similar to cops…
… and despite what Republicans say, there’s no debt tipping point, above which a nation’s growth disappears – That’s just another thoroughly debunked Republican LIE …. But STILL Republicans pretend and democrats compromise that “deficit reduction” is the most important concern of a government budget when it’s just an excuse for squeezing the promise of a decent, middle class life out of the social compact.
But, still… in the bipartisan budget, austerity won again.
In her press conference with Lyin’ Ryan, Patty Murray said the budget compromise was an important step in healing some of the wounds here in Congress.
Yeah… never mind healing the wounds of poverty, unemployment, hunger…. income disparity… as long as Congress can “hug it out” after cutting America’s lifelines.
You see… pretending that a “bipartisan compromise” to policies that harm anyone who woke up on the wrong side of Reaganomics IS THE victory is just part of the game…
… and we are being played.
