Pathetic, Weak RINO Response on Basic Econ

Take a look at my question below and RINO Senator Hanger's pathetic, weak response below that.


My Question on the open thread on Republitarian:

Presidents Kennedy, Reagan and Bush 43 knew that cutting taxes creates jobs, wealth and increases government revenues.

The Commonwealth had more than a 7% INCREASE in revenue in the Fall of 2003. Yet you raised taxes for the largest increase in Virginia history with a regressive tax that punishes the poor and people on a fixed income.

What do you know about economic laws that is different from Kennedy-Reagan-Bush? Where did you learn that difference?

If you don’t know a different economic law, then why did you reject their wisdom and vote like an economics science-challenged Democrat?

Senator Emmett Hangar’s non-answe:

That is a hard one to answer, because the question is based on several pieces of erroneous information. Please refer to my website, emmetthanger.com for detail on what “tax reform” was about. “Largest tax increase in Virginia history” is a sound bite with no basis in reality. While I support President Bush on a lot of things, his economic and fiscal policy stinks. We have racked up over $1.6 trillion in new debt in 6 years. I don’t call that fiscally conservative at all. Virginia is in strong financial position, our economy is thriving, our quality of life is second to none, our relative tax burden is low and I am pleased that I have played a role in keeping our budget balanced and meeting our commitments to local governments. We can do better, but we are a leader in this nation again. That is a very good thing!

What was the erroneous info? The largest tax hike in history? The fact that revenue was increasing when they raised taxes? Basic economics?

C'mon, name what is erroneous.

So, you are AGAINST the Bush tax cuts and the booming economy.

The debt, which is receding and is an increasingly smaller per cent of GDP, is caused by spending - not tax cuts!

Where did this guy learn economics? From Geroge Soros or Stalin?

You nailed him, JAB!

And his comment saying President Bush's economy stinks ... there's no excuse for a "Republican" representative to diss our President about the economy when it's been soaring for months with new Wall Street records being set constantly.

Oh, that's right -- the MSM doesn't report on the GREAT economy under President Bush (unlike the dem president when they ballyhooed the "wonderful" economy on a daily basis).

Thanks for a great response!

Senator Hanger is 'out of touch'. He wonders why Republicans are challenging him?

One thing is sure, I know why Liberals give me the devil on the blogs.. Because I do not hold their views...

I am in touch with that reality.

Don't you think there would have been headlines "DOW BREAKS 13000" or "Decades Unemployment Lowest in Decades" or "Over 6,000,000 Created" if a dem was in office? There would be no war news, just like in Bosnia,Serbia.

Exactly! The MSM has an agenda that closely lines up with the liberals. Report only negative things about the war and don't play up the roaring economy. Slam the President, slam the war ... do it over and over and amplify it throughout the nation ... and then take a poll. If people are indoctrinated enough they will respond the way you want.
