Response to Wicked Blue (Original post)

20. The blatant hypocrisy aside, Republicans aren't really against deficits.

That is just the cover excuse they use for the true objection they have.

Republicans love to spend taxpayers' money.
They just hate it when the Democrats spend taxpayers' money.

Why?

They don't give a crap about the spending or the racking up of huge debt.
The issue is: WHO ARE THE RECIPIENTS OF THE MONEY?

If it goes to tax cuts for the obscene rich, defense contractors, building jails, bail-outs for banks,
then they are more than happy to run up a bill.

However, if the the money is spent on affordable housing, SNAP, public schools, healthcare for the poor,
or anything which benefits the poor or working class (IOW, those POC who are lazy and undeserving)
then they will OBJECT in feigned-concern unison.

It isn't the spending of money which they object to, it's the recipients of the money.
They just can't come out and say it directly.
