Subjects: US politics
It’s been 56 years since a party holding the White House nominated a person that is not currently the President or Vice President. Why is this happening now?
McCain told us in an ad he ran last month, “We’re worse off now than we were four years ago.” He then attempts to anoint himself as an agent of change, but that’s tough to do because he voted with Bush 90% of the time over the last four years.
We admire John McCain, but we care about the future not the past. And for that, there’s no there there with this man: Cut spending, he declares (crowd applauds)! Cut taxes (crowd cheers)! And his big idea? Cut earmarks (crowd becomes hysterical)!
Do the math Mr. McCain. Making the Bush tax cuts permanent would reduce federal tax revenues by a trillion dollars in the next 4 years. If we eliminate every single earmark (including the one Sarah Palin wants to build that gas pipeline in Alaska), we save $75 billion. Where’s the rest of the money coming from?
