Now, the Republicans want spending cuts. What happened to spending cuts when President George W. Bush was in office?
The Iraq war and the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy added $3 trillion to our national debt. Now, all of a sudden, the Republicans want spending cuts. But let us not take away tax loopholes and cut oil company profits; let's make the cuts to the poor and the middle class.
We should recall every member of Congress and replace them with high school kids. I am sure they would do a much better job.

First of all, Bush's tax cuts weren't "tax cuts for the rich". They were tax cuts for EVERYONE (with an income). They are the exact same tax cuts that were extended by your hero, Obama. However, the media/liberals referred to them as "middle class tax cuts" when they were passed by Obama (again, they were the exact same cuts). Secondly, tax cuts don't create deficits, unless you believe that government is entitled to people's income. Finally, Republican voters were upset with spending during Bush's presidency. Did you forget the low Republican turnout for the 2006 midterm elections? You really need to get informed about your talking points, or you'll continue to sound like a mindless Obama sheep.
