You must be a right wing news junkie if . . .

You must be a right wing news junkie if . . .

  • You don’t know that you got a tax cut last year as part of the Democrat’s Stimulus Bill (just check your W2 from 2008 and 2009).
  • You think the stimulus bill didn’t work. Even McCain’s economic advisor Mark Zandi said that the economy would be in a full depression now, instead of a recovery, without the Stimulus Bill. Zandi: “I think stimulus was key to the 4th quarter. It was really critical to business fixed investment…and to housing and residential investment because of the housing tax credit.”
  • You think the stimulus bill created no jobs. Every reputable economist from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office to the right wing American Enterprise Institute (AEI) agrees that the stimulus saved or created 600,000 to 1.6 million jobs in the third quarter of 2009.
  • You think stopping health care reform is a good thing. You don’t know that you haven’t gotten a pay raise in years because of ever increasing insurance payments. Don’t believe me? Check your pay stubs for the last five years and see how much your health insurance has cost every year. Overall health insurance reform is the ONLY way to fix this.
  • You believe Limbaugh when he says: “I think this is the first time in his (Obama’s) life that there’s not a professor around to turn his C into an A or to write the law review article for him he can’t write.”Bradford Berenson — a lawyer who worked in the Bush White House and served with Obama on the Harvard Law Review, said: “I saw Barack hunched over manuscripts editing articles on many a late night at Gannett House. He simply could not have been elected President (of the Law Review) if he was not regarded by his fellow editors as being among the best legal writers and legal minds in his class.
  • You think Obama is running the same deficits monthly that Bush ran annually, as Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling claimed. Apparently, republican Hensarling doesn’t understand that the Obama Administration decided to treat Americans as adults and stop the practice of hiding the actual deficit using accounting tricks. That meant that the deficit waiting for him when he entered office was $1.2 trillion dollars, not the $160 billion under the old, deceptive accounting.

Hensarling must be a Right Wing News Junkie too. Are you?
