The Democrats And The Keynesian Con Game
In the hands of a Democrat, Keynesian economics is simply an excuse to spend; a con game. When they spend it is usually in the form of crony capitalism or in the form of paybacks to their union buddies. When it doesn't turn the economy around, they always complain that the spending wasn't enough. Yes, they need more! A lot more! When they've driven the deficits to new heights, they balk at any spending cuts because they say it will hurt the economy. Even though the economy never benefited from it in the first place. Instead, they would rather raise taxes. Today it's on the rich. Tomorrow it might just have to be on everyone. And, that, my friends, is why liberals have always been referred to as "tax and spend Democrats".
