Morning Joe today was another example of how Republicans are treated differently in the media. They did have a Republican on the show today -- that was good - to discuss the budget, but he was grilled by three Democrats, his answers were interrupted and challenged and Gov Rendell was shown shaking his head in disgust as if it was unpleasant just talking to the guy. I think the Republican's name is Aaron Shock, and he repeated what Paul Ryan has said, that the Democrats keep ignoring, which is the Ryan budget plan calls for defense cuts and it addresses tax loopholes and favored subsidies. The Democrats made the claim over and over that Republicans are avoiding defense and taxes.
The Democrat representative Chris van Hollen came on later, and he was asked one semi-tough question by Nora O'Donnell regarding the fact that the Democrats didn't develop a budget last year -- they allowed van Hollen's long excuse to stand and didn't challenge him.
It's really becoming obvious and comical how the Democrats are pulling together in the media to tear down the Republicans and build up the Democrats. I'm agnostic when it comes to political parties, but I do believe in fairness, and the republicans are at least trying to cut spending.
Donnie Deutsche was on and he asked Patrick Buchanan why the Republicans can't agree to tax millionaires&billionaires. Buchanan gave the right answer -- because it would be spent of "investment" schemes like green energy and would be wasted. We don't have a revenue problem -- we have a spending problem. If money is spent or invested in the private sector, it's used more wisely than if we send it to DC for politicians to spend it. About half the people in the US don't pay income tax, but still idiots like Deutsche think government should take more from the producers who are paying almost all the taxes collected and waste it on Keynesian stimulus. What a maroon!
