What's Mallard raving about today?
Don't you dare use tax dollars to incent development of Green technology, unless it is 100% guaranteed to succeed.
But, don't you dare threaten tax dollar subsidies to Oil companies. Being the most profitable companies on the planet, they require tax dollars to survive.
While we're on the subject, Auto Industry bailouts which saved over 300,000 jobs? Blaaargh!!!!!!
Here's the thing about the modern GOP: They pretend to care about deficits and government spending. But all the really care about is what tax dollars are spent on. If spent to further enrich the Rich, that is OK. The fact that they are Rich is proof enough that they deserve to be Rich and we should support them with obedience and tax dollars. If spent on the Middle Class or in any way to benefit the Middle Class, then it is Socialism, Evil, or Class Warfare (possibly all three).
