Deficit-Hawks Turned Hypocrites!

I wonder when the news media will unmask the hypocrisy of those who claim to be so concerned about the national deficit? These are the same folks who are eager to extend tax cuts which will cost a trillion or so dollars while opposing much needed infrastructure updates when it is known that continuing to defer maintenance is nothing more than accruing a different kind of debt.deficit-hawks

If we’re so worried about the deficit, and I am, let’s allow all of the temporary tax cuts to expire and spend that revenue taking care of deferred maintenance on infrastructure.

That sounds like “responsible, business-friendly, back to basic values” thinking to me!
