A Question for the Deficit Scolds
Steve Rattner, who knows a thing or two about stealing, in his opinion piece in this week’s New York Times exhorts us to stop stealing from our kids. First of all I don’t agree with the premise of this meme, but let us say I did, that budget deficits equal stealing from future generations,and is inherently selfish and evil. Then, I want to know, where Rattner and the other MSM budget scolds were when Bush was reducing the marginal tax rates and blowing up the budget surplus left to him by Bill Clinton. I never heard much from the deficit scolds when Bush was squandering the surplus, and piling up the debt. I wouldn’t be too surprised if they were using their media perches to sell us the glory of tax cuts for the wealthy, back then.
