Kudlow’s Money Politics

What’s That About?

Another example of GOP stupidity is how Republicans are not going to finish the budget. That’s really stupid and it shows why exit polls reported that majority of voters believed Democrats are the party of limited government and lower spending.

What the GOP ought to do in this lame duck Congress is enact a spending cap with their majority. Let the Dems try and raise them next year.

And the brain-dead GOP congressional leadership should make it very clear that their spending cap is attached to current low tax rates.

After all, revenues are growing at 12 percent yearly, but spending is still rising at 8 percent.

Wake up GOP!
