Just another quote to be included in the “Dumb Statements Politicians Make” book.

(More transcript)
HOYER: “Well, we spent a lot of money when George Bush was president of the United States in the House and Senate were controlled by Republicans. We spent a lot of money.”

The gall of this blatant lie.

Try that argument with your credit card company, jackass. What a freaking TOOL.

Every time these people open their mouths and try to “wordsmith” their way around the issues, they show themselves as the stupidest people ever to hold elected office.

They couldn’t MAKE it on the outside. They could never “Build That.”

Hoyer is a socialist POS. Socialism Is Legal Plunder - Bastiat

http://www.usdebtclock.org

‘bout time for CIRS - Citizens Internal Revenue Service to serve notice to collect a debt from the politicians/socialists and their friends and families past and present...all earnings, income, investments, property should be fair game.

I just read a post on FR the other day where the poster mentioned needing a TV show named “Democrats Say The Darnedest Things”, great idea.

OTH Hoyer is right in a literal sense, they never have a problem spending; when you can habitually spend what you don’t have you have the spending part perfected.

How does one “pay” for tax cuts, if not with spending cuts?

I still can't wrap my mind around how the federal government expects us to "pay" for tax cuts.

Apparently, most of the folks in it can't either.

Yeah.

Thanx Steny you Richardhead, I’d be driving a brand new Ford Raptor truck but I have a “paying for problem.”

I’m ready for that asteroid, and I can only hope it lands on DC.

He's actually right.

We elected those idiots.
Now, we're paying for it. And that's a big problem.

"Amazing this guy can hoodwink enough voters in MD to be a senator."

His district is right between the Federal trough and the squealing oinkers who feed from same on the MD. side of DC.

Those leeches love it when their politicians talk like this.

(BTW: He's not a Senator, he's in the House.)

The country has an elected representative problem; they no longer represent.

Au contraire, mon FRier, the big spenders in DC DO represent the majority that voted for them. That majority DEMANDS that their needs be met by government no matter what method of force be used to satisfy those needs.
The real problem the government has is with the folk who produce that are wide awake, innovative, creative and agile enough to keep the government from extracting more than WE believe is their ‘fair share’. We’ve done this before. FDR was angry that his massive tax increases did not produce the increase in revenue.

“Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as
possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the
treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one’s taxes.
Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister
in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. EveryoneQuote by: Judge Learned Hand
(1872-1961), Judge, U. S. Court of Appeals
Source: in the case of Gregory v. Helvering 69 F.2d 809, 810 (2d Cir. 1934), aff’d, 293 U.S. 465, 55 S.Ct. 266, 79 L.Ed. 596 (1935

does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any
public duty to pay more than the law demands.”

How could a sane populace elect someone named Steny Hoyer?
The stupidest person on the planet intuitively knows that it is impossible for someone named Steny Hoyer to have made it through primary and secondary schools with an intact psyche.

The last budget Bush and a GOP Congress passed resulted in a deficit of $137 Billion. That included two wars, years of tax cuts, and prescription drug coverage. Sorry Denny, you have no credibility on any spending issue.

“Paying Problem”, “Deficit Problem” = Liberal code words ofr “We Tax & Spend Democrats want more tax increases”.
