Starve the beast.

Deficit funded tax cuts and now this deficit spending bill will provide the perfect opportunity to sell program cuts to entitlements.

Republicans have an ultimate plan here.

Republicans can cut entitlement programs right now if they can get the votes, since they have all three branches of government. Right now, they are cutting taxes and increasing spending. They are likely to lose control of at least one branch of government in the midterms, at which point they won't be able to get the votes to cut any of the major entitlement programs.

It is like an underwear gnome scheme.
1. Cut taxes and increase federal spending
2. Increase deficit.
3. ????
4. Cut entitlement programs!

Here's a lifelong Republican, discussing the need to fumigate his party - because of Trump and his followers. The best line:

With all of that said, what could finally drive me from the party? If going to the wall for deficits, wife-beaters, mall creepers and Vladimir Putin isn’t enough, what is? And how much longer can this go on before the Trump administration damages the words “Republican” and “conservative” permanently?

My answer is to see whether enough of my fellow conservatives agree with me in 2018 to accept that the party needs to be purged of the New Know-Nothings

Please keep proving me, and others, right. I LOVE it! And you're too stupid to know that's what you're doing, which is a shame.

Today, the entire intelligence community reaffirmed that Russia is actively attacking the United States. The near-universally approved sanctions against this attacker will not be implemented by Donald Trump. Why? I look forward to the silence (again).

Good news is, Sean Hannity will undoubtedly cover this danger to our countr....oh wait. He's tweeting about hidden sperm cells in Obama's Presidential portrait.

I am so glad to be on the right side of history here.

I love the ineptness of Trump's people.

First, they lie about knowing about Porter being a wife-beater.

Now, Cohen has admitted that he paid a well-endowed porn-starlet $130,000 with his "own money" the week before the election. He explicitly says the money isn't from the Trump Organization or the Trump campaign, but curiously omitting whether it might have come from Trump.

And now, because Cohen admitted making the payment, he violated the terms of the non-disclosure agreement with Ms. Stormi. She's free to talk now.

Self-inflicted wounds every day with Trump. It would be great theater if this wasn't debasing the office of the President.

LM to attach any coherent political motives to today's events is an incredibly hasty judgment...Idk, perhaps you can convince me that Trump's reckless rhetoric on certain issues enables this type of behavior but...I do not believe that is the case. Let's see what comes out of the shooter's testimony.
