And even then it won’t stick because someone will get bitten by a shark or a little blonde girl will get kidnapped:
Deficit Hawks Don’t Care About The Deficit
Some just want to cut spending that might benefit poor brown people, most just want to cut taxes paid by rich people. They don’t actually care about the deficit. Nobody does except maybe CBO actuaries.
If they cared about the deficit, Dick Darman and the elder George Bush and Bill Clinton would be heroes. They care about tax cuts for the rich. Period.
