Ace of Spades blog asks questions I have wondered about myself.
When Obama comes out with his after Labor Day labor plan a lot of gullible and desperate people will swallow it. It sounds as if it will be the same old prolong the payroll tax, extend the unemployment time, tax corporations more and start infrastructure jobs (did you ever see one product of that stimulus spending?). Still, Republicans will need an answer.
As Ace of Spades says, “the new spendulus bill is designed to be rejected by Republicans. Why are we not pushing our own such offers?
“Obamacare is unpopular. It always has been. It helps us to demand its repeal. It helps us to always make the repeal of Obamacare a concession to be extracted in exchange for anything Obama might ask for himself.
“It does not hurt us to ask for this. It helps us because the public wants it repealed.
“Here’s a question: Is there any one sentence legislation that can do the following:
1. Reduce the uncertainty and fear factor among businesses and hence stimulate the economy.
2. Save a trillion in spending.
3. Add a half trillion to Medicare without costing the taxpayer a dime.
“I know one – repealing Obamacare.”
Instead of getting deep into economic theories, we’d do well to keep it simple like this.
