Losing Faith

The incomparable Jackie (Morganfield) Lambert the great niece of the legendary blues man Muddy Waters has done it again. Jackie offers her powerful commentaries on "LET'S TALK ABOUT IT" every Tuesday night at 9:00 PM (est) on with me and the Wild & Wonderful Brenda White. You must join us on the fastest growing political talk show on the air where we talk about the political news of the day. Oh, and all the crazy goings-on in our country. It’s a blast!!!

Losing Faith

The Republican Party claims that the act of raising taxes is in direct violation of their solemn pledge to Grover Norquist, a man most recently described as “some random person” by speaker of the house John Boehner. They also tell us that raising taxes is a direct violation of their most sacred article of faith.

Their devotion to this belief is the reason that we can’t seem to make any headway in reducing the national debt or passing a modest bill to aid in job creation.

The Republican Party has told us for the last 10+ years that tax cuts are magical. They don’t need any budgetary off-sets because they pay for themselves. And while it would seem to any rational person that the huge tax cuts put in place during the Bush administration aided in exploding the national debt and hurling the nation into a cycle of deficit spending; Republican representatives assure us that that isn’t the case at all. We must have faith.

Given the manner in which the modern Republican Party has vociferously defended this article of faith, why have they failed to extend a payroll tax cut that will save 160 million Americans an average of $1,000 per year? Why does this particular tax-cut need a budgetary off-set so as not to add to the deficit? I mean, aren’t tax cuts magical? Have Republicans lost their faith?
