Quote of the Day: Post Dispatch: “Nixon Will Have to Act Fast (Raise Taxes) or Face a $340 Million Deficit”

December 2nd, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

“Momma always said life was like a box of chocolates….”

“Red ink for Missouri: Incoming governor Jay Nixon will have to act fast or face a $340 million deficit.

That’s the headline today on the St. Louis Post Dispatch’s Internet front page. If you think you’re having a deja vu moment, you’re not. Mr. Haney, the smooth talking swindler salesman of the old Green Acres television series, would be immensely proud of the politicians and greedy businessmen who are perpetrating the scam of the century on the American people.

The Post’s “sky is falling” rhetoric was the same rhetoric fed to us by the President and the media during the so called banking crisis to justify the $700 billion bailout of the financial industry. Weren’t we told that if Congress didn’t act quickly, the financial system would collapse? It’s also the same rhetoric being employed by Republican senators to justify a similar bailout for the auto industry. In our opinion, “acting fast” is nothing but a recipe for liberals to justify raising taxes in a weak economy.

    Yet, he wants to reverse all the welfare cuts that Matt Blunt made after getting into office.
