Republicans Don’t Really Want to Reduce Spending
If they did — here’s a $53 Billion dollar savings staring them in the face.
House Democrats tried to recoup $53 billion worth of subsidies and tax loopholes from the five largest oil companies. Every single Republican (hereafter referred to as the GOBP) voted “No.”
For some odd reason, during the vote all of the Republicans had their pants around their ankles and oil lobbyists’ dicks up their asses. Coincidence?
OK, so you can’t expect a prostitute to vote against her pimp.
But that’s not all. Republicans keep pretending they’re all about business and investment. Apparently they aren’t familiar with a few Business 101 expressions like “you have to spend money to make money” and “return on investment.” Anybody?
Republicans want to eliminate $600 million from the IRS’ budget (and an even larger cut next year). Hellooo!?!?!?!?
For every dollar the IRS spends auditing — and collecting from — tax cheats, the IRS brings in ten dollars. That complicated multi-syllable term again (since we’re talking about Republicans here) is “return on investment.”
Rep. Jose Serrano (D—NY) said: “It makes little sense to cut the agency that collects revenue.”
And last but not least — today’s Open Mouth Insert Dick award goes to Haley Barbour:
“I’m glad we got us a colored boy in the White House. That’s why so many good ol’ inbred boys got up off the couch and went to the voting booth last November.”
