080927_earmarksThe teabaggers’ candidate in upstate New York, who’s a flat-earther taxer, thinks magic will bring the Bush/Cheney deficit under control.

Would you vote for higher taxes to help pay for the deficit?

President Ronald Reagan said it best:  “The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.”  Before we even consider raising taxes we must first bring spending under control.

What spending would you cut?

I would cut the pork and wasteful earmarks.

Hoffman, like John McCain — who ran on exactly the same bullshit — clearly can’t add.

One last time: earmarks account for about 2% of spending. Pork barrel projects, pretty much the same.

Yet Hoffman claims cutting $36B out of the $3T budget, while his nutty flat tax slashes federal revenues, somehow all adds up to a lower deficit. Making him either a liar or an idiot.

Great pick, teabaggers.
