Heh...just like Sarah Palin was?
Paul Ryan explains why he voted for the McConnell-Biden deal and H.R. 8.
In his words:
We had been hit with a $4.4 trillion dollar tax increase yesterday, and I had the opportunity to knock it down by $3.8 trillion dollars. That means 98% of the country dont get hit with a tax increase.
To think that passing H.R. 8 was a good choice is clueless conservatism. The Republican Party is either the party of economic growth, or it is nothingand being nothing loses elections. H.R. 8 is not something that anyone who is concerned about economic growth (and who knows how to produce it) would have agreed to.
From 2012 levels, H.R. 8 raised all of the taxes that negatively impact economic growth (the top rates on ordinary income, dividends, capital gains, and inheritances), while capping those that have little or no effect on the rate of GDP expansion. As a result, compared with maintaining all of the 2012 tax rates, H.R. 8 will reduce economic growth and yield lower, rather than higher, federal revenues.
Sarah Palin was the one hopeful blip on the GOP screen in decades
If not for her, McCain would have been an even bigger loser than he was (is).
Then, the GOP proved (once again) it’s inability to learn a lesson, and put ‘Reince’ (???) Prebus in charge. If there was anything that could have shown the people how clueless they were other than electing someone named ‘Reince’ I dont know what it could be.
The GOP party has become a bureaucratic organization mostly concerned with holding their own jobs and promoting from within, as bad as any other government bureacracy.
