Crazy Quote of the Day

“The tax cuts don’t pay for themselves, but they certainly lead to [economic] growth... Combined with the kind of measures we’ve proposed to hold down spending . . . put us in the place we want to be.” Marco Rubio

While it's nice that Rubio finally admitted to the fact that the Bush tax cuts add to the deficit, in what imaginary world is the rest of that true? You know what else creates economic growth? Stimulus spending. And, in fact, stimulus spending is exponentially more effective than tax cuts in stimulating growth. So Rubio has it completely and totally backwards. He wants to cut spending and cut taxes. Combined, this is a horrible way to recover the economy.
