It looks to me that the cons say it is bad, evil thing but the reality is that they are talking out of ignorance and dumb greed. How would you ever pay the entitlements and government debt unless you raise taxes? The cons mantra economic expansion but expansion of what? We sold out the entire economy to off shoring and cannot compete because the US industry has jumped the shark long ago. Their MBA's do not amount to dogshit. So Con, before you expose your brainwashed state and ignorance let me assure you - you try to take away entitlements after you exported and ruined all sorts of good paying US jobs and I can see your gated communities in flames. You think it is too far fetched? The domestic folk are not patient and rather violent, thanks to movies and empty promises.
