Republican agenda no joke

Posted By on Sun, Mar 18, 2012 at 12:46 PM

I half-jokingly concocted a Republican agenda for incoming caucus leader Bruce Westerman. You'll see in an interview he gave Stephens Media that I wasn't far off.

Cut taxes. Cut spending. Cut regulations (except those that limit medical freedom and unpopular freedoms of other sorts.). Give truckers a handout they don't deserve. The only acceptable reworking of Medicaid is slashing of services. He mischaracterizes an income tax cut as a boon to those on fixed income. The poor are already protected. His approach will almost certainly produce a Kansas-style Brownback plan that will be a windfall for the wealthy. And that is no joke.
