Bachmann: I Don't Think Tax Cuts Should Be Defined As Part Of A Deficit (VIDEO) | TPMDC: "- Sent using Google Toolbar"
This video shows Michelle Bachmann, a GOP rep from Minnesota, who has been a leader of the movement within the GOP to align with the Tea Party. In this video she attempts to explain why tax cuts should not be considered as a contributor to budget deficits. She wants to focus on "out of control spending by democrats". This is consistent with the Tea Party concern about non-defense spending (which may help illegal immigrants and people of color). I joked about the Tea Party and the new math in a prior post about their efforts to reform education so that it would be consistent with what they believe. I did not realize that any sane person would actually make such a claim. She must understand her base better than I do. Its possible, however, that we may have to redefine sanity if our definition excludes 20-30% of the population.
