Thought for the day

Posted: February 20, 2009 in depression, republicans

The Republicans are fond of telling us that our national socioeconomic problems are too complex to be solved simply by “throwing money at them”.  Fine, but why has that been their only response to the problems we’ve been having over the past ten years?  Remember in 2001 when Bush took office, he noticed what he thought was a blip on the economic radar, and decided what we needed was a “stimulus plan”?  Remember that that plan amounted to nothing but tax cuts and rebates?  And last year, when he was dragged out of his eight year sleepwalk, his response to the looming disaster was, once again, tax cuts and rebates?  Did it work in either case?

And don’t tax cuts and rebates amount to “throwing money at the problem”?

Have they noticed that NONE of their ideas have had the slightest positive impact?  I’m dying to hear from Republicans out there who think they can answer this question:

If throwing money at a problem doesn’t solve it, why is it Republicans always want to throw money at problems?

Please, post your comments below and be polite.  If you’re polite, honest and sincere I will respond in kind.  If, on the other hand, you’re boorish, condescending and snarky, expect the same in reply.

I look forward to an intelligent explanation for this phenomenon.
