GOP Wants Old People To Eat Cat Food
“I have purposely been using, on this program, a phrase that I’ve known for a long time was coming, “laughed Hannity, “That is that Republicans want old people to die or if they live they’ll only be able to eat dog food, or cat food-I’ll add cat food to the mix.” Sean continued, ”Democrats are so predictable and they have the same old scare tactics.” The Hannity assault pushed on, “We need to put a poll on Hannity.com asking who is the first Democrat portraying the Ryan budget as Republicans wanting old people to eat dog food or cat food.” Be sure to cast your vote, here! Sean might be joking a bit here but his point is a great one. When it comes to tough decisions between fiscal responsibility and political expediency, it seems the Democrats are always shying away from the former.
Who Can We Blame? Tamara Holder vs. Brent Bozell
Sean was joined by Tamara Holder and Brent Bozell to discuss the politics behind the budget proposals. “All of this is predictable,” noted Hannity, “Republicans want granny to die and eat cat food.” Holder offered her thoughts saying, “We need compromise and a shutdown is terrible, regardless of the side you’re on.” Bozell quickly retorted, “We’re looking at a $1.7 Trillion deficit this year alone thanks to Obama and the Democrats that controlled everything last year.” Holder fought back saying, “We could argue about both sides spending where they shouldn’t have spent, the American people are angry with everyone on both sides.” For the latest rundown of the 2011 budget battles, check out Time.com’s latest blog here.
Former Senator Alan Simpson
Former Wyoming Senator Alan Simpson joined Sean to give his thoughts on his role as Co-Chairman of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility. “How bad is the problem of the debt and the deficit,” questioned Hannity. Simpson analogized the situation saying, “If you spend a buck and borrow forty cents of it, you’ve got to be stupid, and it doesn’t matter what party you come from.” There are many ways to summarize our current fiscal situation but there are none more clearly defined than that. Our government is out of control and our only hope is to hear from more folks like former Senator Alan Simpson. To read the latest on his committee’s recommendations, check it out by clicking here.
