Would you buy a used car from…

Mitch McConnell?

If you would, why?

In a New York Times article discussing the President’s concession to the Senatorial Republicans’ holding middle class tax cuts hostage, McConnell is quoted as saying nice things about Mr. Obama’s “openness to preventing tax hikes.”

The package will reportedly cost $900 billion dollars which will have to be borrowed.  At some point the $900 billion will have to be repaid—with  interest.  That’ll push the total cost of this package quite near the trillion dollar mark. 

Does McConnell think the re-payment will be made without raising taxes?

“Borrow and spend” makes much less sense than “tax and spend.”

Nothing implies a failure of the American education system more than the fact that the Republicans continue to get the public to vote against its own best interest.

Trust, but verify.
