Republicans on Entitlements: Don’t Cut Benefits, Don’t Raise Taxes. Hmmm.

71% of ‘pubs don’t want to raise taxes to pay for those ebil entitlements, and 59% don’t want to cut the benefits that those ebil entitlements provide.

And they think Democrats are fluffy-headed utopians?

    Nice post and graph Steve. Republicans old LIE they’ve been telling at least since Reagan walloped Mondale in the ’84 elections: “Yes folks, you can have your cake and eat it too.”

    Steve, on a separate topic, I thought this was a gem of a quote I found in the LATimes today. It is from a Republican in Delaware who has decided to vote for the Democrat in Delaware’s U.S. Senate race. A not so thinly veiled reference to the Tea PArty: “You put flakes in a cereal box, not in the Senate,”

    I should have said table, not graph. These Harry high school Teabaggers are starting to rub off on me Steve. Hey Steve Did you know Christine O’Donnell literally received her college degree this year (September 2010) after finishing credits in some Summer courses. And “our girl” Angle out in Nevada, how much would you pay for the tickets to observe her take a basic World Geography exam, and see her scores?? I don’t honestly know Steve, but I would like to see the Vegas odds on her passing that.

    I can’t remember who said it: “War is nature’s way of teaching Americans geography.”
