Democrats Demand More Spending
When is it enough spending? To liberals they can’t seem to get enough.
Check it out:
Who are the “hostage-takers” now? Convinced by opinion polls that the media will let them get away with it, Democrats are now refusing to pass a “clean” continuing resolution to end the government shutdown, as well as a straightforward debt ceiling increase, in order to undo the sequester cuts that went into effect earlier this year. They are the ones holding a gun to Republicans’ heads, threatening default if their demands are not met.
Just like Obamacare, the sequester–passed in the Budget Control Act of 2011–is the “law of the land.” And yet Democrats want to undo it–or else they will keep nearly 400,000 federal employees out of work and let the country risk not paying its bills. Where is the outrage at this disgusting hypocrisy? Where are all the dire warnings about children with cancer and catastrophic interest rates and the end of civilization as we know it?
Democrats are threatening to destroy the economy unless they can increase government spending. And yet the media are silent, their corruption and mendacity on full display. The Wall Street Journal, for its part, is more interested in settling political scores than pointing out Democrats’ hypocrisy: according to its editorial Monday, this is all Ted Cruz’s fault: he weakened the GOP, provoking the Democrats, you see. Absurd.
