I meant to post this earlier today, but better late than never: I had a lengthy meeting yesterday with Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, a true conservative gentleman, and he had some very interesting things to say. First, he quoted New Mexico’s Sen. Pete Domenici asking this (supposedly a word for word quote that Sessions jotted down): “If the Democratic proposals all were passd, how much would it add to discretionary spending and mandatory spending, and for tax increases?” Domenici’s answer, according to Sessions: $16.3 billion in added discretionary spending, $125 billion in additional ‘mandatory’ (entitlement) spending over five years, and tax increases of $125 billion.
(Quin commenting now:) Wow. Tax and tax, spend and spend. The GOP in Congress has been just awful for many years on spending, but only if you don’t consider the alternative. No wonder nobody trusts the Dems in Congress with the public fisc!
