Liberal Utopia

What your world would be if everything liberals wanted, they got. Open the door at the bottom of its Elysium fa├žade and take a glimpse of hell.

You're Pissing Me Off, GOP

 

You can't keep your most basic promises, and it's my fault?


“Y

ou need to contribute one hundred dollars to us, Mr. Raindead, or the Democrats will   (insert fascist evil-doing here)  ," the Republican National Committee "messenger" told me on the phone this morning. Caller ID: "000-000-0000."

"I'll make the same pledge I made to the last RNC 'messenger' who called me asking for a donation," I said. "You keep your pledge to cut one hundred Billion from the current federal budget, and I'll start donating again." I thought that was reasonable, given the hundreds I contributed last year and the pitiful return on that investment I've seen this year.

"But we have done a lot already, Mr. Raindead," the messenger claimed without offering hard specifics. "You can't expect us to Walk On Water™."

"I'm not expecting any such thing. You pledged to cut one hundred Billion dollars, but you haven't. You could have easily done it in the House of Representatives, the body you control, because the party who controls the House can pass whatever it wants — free and clear — in the first ten bills of the new session. Even if the Senate later killed the spending cut or the pResident vetoed it, that still means you kept your word."

"So, for this Glass Half Empty™ reason, you're going to withhold your contributions and allow the Democrats to stop us from keeping our promises."

It wasn't a question.

Apparently, this "messenger" wants me to believe that holding the Republican Party accountable for refusing to keep its promises is the same as preventing it from keeping them.

That's the kind of vile, lying accusation that DemøcoMSMunist Party Politburo messengers propagandists are always lodging against people they hate.

Similarly, the GOP is saying that this "promise," despite the facts, was actually "fulfilled."

Cut Government Spending to Pre-Stimulus, Pre-Bailout Levels
With common-sense exceptions for seniors, veterans, and our troops, we will roll back government spending to prestimulus, pre-bailout levels, saving us at least $100 billion in the first year alone and putting us on a path to begin paying down the debt, balancing the budget, and ending the spending spree in Washington that threatens our children's future.

Promise Fulfilled -- NOT!This Promise was fulfilled on January 20, 2011.
Upon passage of H.Res. 38, current government spending will be rolled back to that of the levels of FY 2008 or before. This will reduce non-security discretionary spending to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels.

Spending hasn't been, but "will be" rolled backed. Someday.

That bit about "saving us at least $100 billion in the first year alone." Well, that's just Walk On Water™ stuff.

I'm not contributing my hard-earned money to hear talk but to see results.

If the RNC and its messengers can't get that, it won't be getting anything from me.
