On this week’s podcast, we discussed the resolution drawn up by members of the Republican National Committee to “re-establish the party’s conservative bona fides.” Believe it or not, there are some who think I do not pick on Republicans enough, so I thought I would channel my inner xenophobic, pro-war, and socially intolerant Republican and jokingly insert the subtext I infer from their statements.
- We support smaller government, smaller national debt, lower deficits and lower taxes by opposing bills like Obama’s “stimulus” bill
When Democrats are in charge, we can no longer expand the size, scope, and power of the federal government in the ways that we want to, so we have decided to feign support for smaller government to keep those “tea baggers” from throwing us out of office. Remember the TARP bailout? Our guy signed that into law. Obama is a pretty easy and identifiable target, so we included invoking his name every time we talk about the stimulus bill that we would have written differently but still passed, had a Republican Congress and executive been in place in the time of need.
- We support market-based health care reform and oppose Obama-style government run healthcare
Since the Democrats proposed massive government intervention into the healthcare marketplace, we oppose it. That will likely end the January after you get tired of the other guys and vote us back into power, so we can bring you more fantastic healthcare reform ideas, like Medicare Part D.
