Republicans: continued

Post by L'Emmerdeur » Wed Oct 17, 2018 2:32 am

Meanwhile, back in the land of meretricious hard-shelled shitbags:

'Mitch McConnell Calls for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid Cuts After Passing Tax Cuts, Massive Defense Spending'
After instituting a $1.5 trillion tax cut and signing off on a $675 billion budget for the Department of Defense, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that the only way to lower the record-high federal deficit would be to cut entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

"It’s disappointing, but it’s not a Republican problem," McConnell said of the deficit, which grew 17 percent to $779 billion in fiscal year 2018. McConnell explained to Bloomberg that "it’s a bipartisan problem: Unwillingness to address the real drivers of the debt by doing anything to adjust those programs to the demographics of America in the future." The deficit has increased 77 percent since McConnell became majority leader in 2015.

New Treasury Department analysis on Monday revealed that corporate tax cuts had a significant impact on the deficit this year. Federal revenue rose by 0.04 percent in 2018, a nearly 100 percent decrease on last year’s 1.5 percent. In fiscal year 2018, tax receipts on corporate income fell to $205 billion from $297 billion in 2017.
The scabrous malignant twit McConnell really exemplifies the vile center of the Republican party, running rampant behind their lying narcissist buffoon of a leader.

I recently read McConnell's memoir, The Long Game, to learn more about him and his philosophy in his own words. As far as I can tell, he has no philosophy, no vision, and no moral compass except winning elections and accumulating power for its own sake.

He makes Newt Gingrich look like a statesman.

When's the fucking split up of the country going to happen? Seriously, fucking get to it. Your country is broken at the moment, with no foreseeable way of unbreaking itself. Why the fuck are the west coast and the north east hanging around??

Comment on Redditt about Beto Cruz debate:
BortleNeck • 48m
Even a longer forum with charts, etc wouldn't persuade hard right/left voters. Those minds are made up.

Seems to me that the game is primarily is about energizing your base to get better turnout, and secondly about reaching undecided and apathetic voters.

But I do agree that the debate format is awful. The "winner" of these debates is whoever got in the most memorable zingers. There's zero thoughtful discussion.

Republican Representative Steve King of Iowa is endorsing a candidate for mayor of Toronto. Going out of his way to cement his position as a shitlord.

'Rep. Steve King Endorses Neo-Nazi Sympathizer Faith Goldy. GOP Says Nothing.'
The far-right congressman once again publicly embraced a white-nationalist public figure and his party’s leaders remain silent.

Once again, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) publicly declared his support for white-nationalist and neo-Nazi figures and, once again, Republican leadership remains silent.

King, who is currently running for re-election, tweeted an endorsement late Tuesday evening for Faith Goldy, a white supremacist, right-wing YouTube star running for the mayor of Toronto.

“Faith Goldy, an excellent candidate for Toronto mayor, pro Rule of Law, pro Make Canada Safe Again, pro balanced budget, &...BEST of all, Pro Western Civilization and a fighter for our values. @FaithGoldy will not be silenced,” the eight-term congressman tweeted last night, despite polls having the neo-Nazi-sympathizing Toronto native at just 1.5 percent.

I'm pro Western Civilisation - founded as it is on Enlightenment thinking - but is that actually code for a 'white ethno-state'?
