Krugman – ‘Four Fiscal Phonies’

Via: NYT

Mitt Romney is very concerned about budget deficits. Or at least that’s what he says; he likes to warn that President Obama’s deficits are leading us toward a “Greece-style collapse.”

So why is Mr. Romney offering a budget proposal that would lead to much larger debt and deficits than the corresponding proposal from the Obama administration?

Of course, Mr. Romney isn’t alone in his hypocrisy. In fact, all four significant Republican presidential candidates (see photo) still standing are fiscal phonies. They issue apocalyptic warnings about the dangers of government debt and, in the name of deficit reduction, demand savage cuts in programs that protect the middle class and the poor. But then they propose squandering all the money thereby saved — and much, much more — on tax cuts for the rich.

And nobody should be surprised. It has been obvious all along, to anyone paying attention, that the politicians shouting loudest about deficits are actually using deficit hysteria as a cover story for their real agenda, which is top-down class warfare.

To put it in Romneyesque terms, it’s all about finding an excuse to slash programs that help people who like to watch Nascar events, even while lavishing tax cuts on people who like to own Nascar teams.

Mitt ‘the flipper’ Romney

Via: Think Progress

Mitt Romney has pilloried Rick ‘Frothy’ Santorum for seeking congressional earmarks, but a new video from 2002 unearthed by ABC News shows the former Massachusetts governor laying out an aggressive strategy to get federal funds for his state. “I want to go after EVERY grant. EVERY project, EVERY department in Washington,” Romney says in a presentation.
