Do you realize how many idiots on this board don't understand that large cuts to the federal government will always lead to a recession and raised unemployment? It's quite amazing how many people here don't understand that simple connection. There are at least several who do, of course, but want their cake and eat it too (want cuts, and also want to blame the consequences on "the other guys")
Of course, this thread mostly seems to be a circle jerk for those that revel in the economy worsening because their party/beliefs are more important to them than anything else. Just like their reps.
