Jon Flesichman has a post on the state budget where he gets two distinct things totally wrong.
First off, Jon shows a chart that compares the proposed budget with what he saysÃ‚Â is last year’s budget.Ã‚Â But the chart’s “last year’s budget numbers are really budget numbers from two years ago.
Simple mistake.Ã‚Â I’ve made those myself.
But Jon goes on to write this:
It is easy to see that Democrats want to massively increase spending, and are accusing the Republicans of wanting to cut spending.Ã‚Â The reality is that the Republicans are simply proposing LESS OF AN INCREASE.Ã‚Â Actually, we should have actual cuts, and a lot of them, give the largesse in the budget.Ã‚Â But clearly, in this case, the Democrats are whores for any increased spending, and the Republicans are being very modest in their efforts to apply a degree of fiscal discipline to state finaces (sic).
Mmmm.Ã‚Â So Democrats are whores now.Ã‚Â Funny, given the special election and recall election driven by Republicans that cost the state tens of millions of dollars, money wasn’t the issue then.Ã‚Â And during the 12 years Republicans held purse strings in DC, I can’t exactly say they were the party of fiscal restraint.
But whores, Jon.Ã‚Â That’s below the belt.
I could go with “I’m rubber and you’re glue…”Ã‚Â But as far as whores go, I think its a term better suited for the Republican Party
