Democrats now demanding stimulus be a part of fiscal cliff deficit package
Heh. Like I couldn’t have seen this coming. Now Democrats are demanding that stimulus dollars be a part of the fiscal-cliff ‘deficit package.’ Guess which Marxist Democrat is demanding it? Non other than New York’s own Marxist Senator Chuck Schumer. I’ve already stated my stance. Let all Bush tax cuts expire, give Obama the sequestration he wants, and let the Democrats finally own the economy with no more Bush attached.
“We need to do something on stimulus as part of the overall fiscal cliff,” said Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), the Senate Democrats’ chief political strategist. “We have to do something because the economy is not growing fast enough in the first year or two.”
Schumer said deficit reduction and a federal stimulus package are not mutually exclusive.
