We are in the age of Uniparty austerity government like Western Europe.
This means the politicians ultimate goals are to trim spending here and there and raise tax revenue to higher levels to manage debt payments and keep up the credit rating of the United States, a nation 17 trillion or more dollars in the hole.
We’ve already seen that with the Paul Ryan-Patty Murray budget plan passed late last year to create new airline fees (TAXES) and cut the extended unemployment and military pensions.
The plan of Mr. Camp, a GOPe Boehnerite Republican, is designed along those lines.
95 PERCENT OF ELECTED REPUBLICAN OFFICIALS EITHER FAKE CONSERVATISM OR REPUDIATE IT.....
In the absence of any other step forward by the uniparty, I’d prefer economic growth to no economic growth. However, I don’t expect even that.
