1. It will be bad for the economy...

You'd think the republicans would notice what kinds of things cause recessions since they've played a hand in causing pretty much every recession.

When the government tries to save money to pay for cutting taxes, we get a recession. Pretty simple equation really.

Sure, spending cuts can be done over time. We saw it during the Clinton administration and Obama was reducing the deficit every year once things stabilized, but the magical thinking that jobs will start materializing once you've cut spending is pure magical thinking.
