Yeah... no open-ended spending except... all discretionary spending, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, tax cut extensions, estate tax reductions, AMT exemptions, as well as anything the majority wishes to use a waiver on - unemployment benefits, a new veterans' entitlement, a $787 billion dollar stimulus bill...Pelosi: "When I became speaker of the House ... our majority made PAYGO the rule of the House -- that if you wanted to have an investment, an entitlement, etc., you had to pay for it. There was no open-ended spending."
Other than that, Nancy is right, if you wanted to have an investment, an entitlement, etc., you had to pay for it. Now THAT'S fiscal discipline.
Catch me if you can.
What's riotous is saying a minimum wage hike will destroy tons of jobs when it's been proven time and time again that it may have a very brief impact on number of jobs, but it long-term boosts the economy.
What's even funnier is calling people "job creators" when they've done nothing but lay people off for about three years and reap the profits.
What's truly sad is to think that increasing the minimum wage does not hurt anyone.
What is even more truly sad is that liberals think the Democrats have the correct economic and fiscal policy for the United States.
Pathetic! Truly pathetic.
