Just a Question.

October 18, 2008

So thanks to “Joe The Plumber” and Obama’s unfortunately phrased, “Spread the wealth” answer, the right is buzzing with good old-fashioned “tax-raising socialist liberal” rhetoric.  The liberals will take your money and they’ll decide what to do with it, they exclaim.

But didn’t they forfeit the right to complain about “liberal” spending initiatives when they signed off an a $700 billion bailout package to salvage Wall Street?  Isn’t that the government deciding how to distribute your taxpayer dollars?

I mean, what’s the difference?

You can’t claim to champion fiscal conservatism only when it’s convenient to your side of the argument.
