Very Selective Budget Hawkery

July 21st, 2010at 07:17am Posted by Eli

Michele Bachmann, head of the House’s new Tea Party Caucus, explains why tax cuts don’t require any budget offsets:

I think we need to be paying for all the spending that’s going on.  But when people can keep more of their own money that shouldn’t be considered a cost.

Ohhh, I see.  But the thing is, it actually is a cost.  Anything that increases the deficit – which Bachmann’s own party insists is The Most Scary Important Thing In The World – is a cost.  She’s basically arguing that ice cream has no calories because it’s so damn tasty.
