"It's a deficit to government but it's not a deficit to people who get to keep their money".
Huh? I thought We, the People, were the government. I thought we elected people like Bachmann to represent our interests in the Congress. I thought they voted to spend a trillion dollars on wars and to cut taxes at the same time?

BACHMANN: And remember it's a deficit to government but it's not a deficit to people who get to keep their money. So it's how you frame it. I don't think letting people keep their own money should be considered a deficit.

What a dangerous moran!

etc. They just don't want to pay for it. Taxes are a necessity for society. It is fair to debate how much is necessary but we cannot survive as a nation without taxes. Everybody likes to spend money - just on different things.

The "money" is all of ours. It doesn't just belong to them.

3. It's a robbery to the bank, but...
just a routine transaction for the one who stole the money.

4. Why the H, does our Party have such a problem calling a spade
a spade??? I assume some in our Party agree with this
tactic also.

Starting in the Reagan Administration, when it was realized
that the People would not agree to serious cuts in Entitlement
Programs, the Starve the Beast Strategy was created.

Cut Cut Cut Taxes, every chance you get. More taxcuts
less money comes to Government. Cut Cut over a period
of time--voila, not enough money in the Goverment Coffers
to pay for entitlements. Yes, we must end them.

Getting rid of FDRs New Deal has been the objective
of the GOP. Our Party has enabled the slow destruction
by not calling them out but rather in some cases supporting
the Republicans.

Starve the Beast is real. The 700 Billion for the Rich is
money not going to the Government and therefore we will
suffer the cuts.

I am beginning to believe our Party also wants a tierd
society with a Caste system. This is what we are building.
Starve the Beast--Starve the Government Coffers.
