Rep. Pallone (D-NJ): The Tea Party Focus on Deficit Reduction is ‘Very Wrong’
Cybercast News Service ^ | May 6, 2013 | Eric Scheiner

Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) told students at Rider University that conservatives are wrong to make deficit reduction a priority. …

“Bottom line is that the right wing, and I say the Tea Party, has made deficit reduction the main priority—the main economic priority, and I will tell you point blank—that I do not think it is. … I believe in economic growth, and I think the only way we get out of the recession—and we are gradually getting out of it—is by having policies in Washington that create growth and therefore create jobs and therefore eliminate the problems that we may have with Social Security trust funds and the Medicare trust funds.” …

Remember when a $500 million dollar deficit ($300 mil of which was a tax rebate stimulus program) was dangerous, reckless and unpatriotic? I wonder if we will ever see those days again before the system collapses?

Pallone, a career politician parasite (25 years in Congress) who has no clue about economics.

Gotta agree with Pallone—

"The way to have safe government is not to trust it all to the one, but to divide it among the many, distributing to everyone exactly the functions in which he is competent....To let the National Government be entrusted with the defense of the nation, and its foreign and federal relations..... The State Governments with the Civil Rights, Laws, Police and administration of what concerns the State generally. The Counties with the local concerns, and each ward direct the interests within itself. It is by dividing and subdividing these Republics from the great national one down through all its subordinations until it ends in the administration of everyman's farm by himself, by placing under everyone what his own eye may superintend, that all will be done for the best."
Thomas Jefferson

Doing tyranny’s bidding...

This scumbag is sugarcoating the tar pit of debt. The government’s debt is the taxpayers’ debt — a difficult thing to comprehend especially for those that don’t understand the impact of oppressive debt.

What a devious asshole.

He's got that right.

We should be for economic growth for sure. Via reducing the proportion of the national income consumed by government. That should include Pallone's job, obviously. If we do that, the deficit will shrink over time. Pallone can sell insurance or spin pizza dough. I'll bet he has halitosis, too, being on a social wrung just below trailer trash!

The sad thing is that the Rider students probably sat there with blank stares, nodding in agreement with everything he said.

What this is code for, and what he is really saying, is that there is no need for a political party that believes in fiscal responsibility or smaller reigned in Federal Govt. In a nutshell there is no point to the Republican party.

He wants a one party rule in the entire USA like in NJ NY MD MA CT RI ME VT. New England is a good name for that fetid region.

These socialist persist in the delusion that government spending cause economic growth. They cannot seem to grasp that things given away for free, in this case money, have no value.

“Look around you at this crowd graduating today. Half of you will find meaningful jobs and the other half will be supported by the taxes that will take half - or more - of your earnings ... and those of your children. So what’s not to love about the compassion and efficiency of big government?”
