The GOP Plan to Flush Your State’s Economy Down the Toilet
http://www.alternet.org/economy/gop-plan...own-toilet

From the article:
Quote:The GOP has plans for a comeback. But it may cost you a lot. The idea is to capitalize on recent Republican state takeovers to conduct an austerity experiment known as the new “red-state model” and prove that faulty policies can be turned into gold.

There will be smoke. There will be mirrors. And there will be a lot of ordinary people suffering needlessly in the wake of this ideological train wreck.

We already have a red-state model, and it’s called Mississippi. Or Texas. Or any number of states characterized by low public investment, worker abuse, environmental degradation, educational backwardness, high rates of unwanted pregnancy, poor health, and so on.

Now the GOP is determined to bring that horrible model to the rest of America.

...

The GOP wants to destroy the economy in order to save it? That makes no sense at all. Their way hasn't worked in the past and a new PR campaign won't change that. Nono

Smoke and mirrors is all they've got.

Silence is consent.

Gov. Kasich in Ohio is using the smoke and mirrors.

He had a private meeting with school administrators to explain his new school funding plan and all of them came away pleased. Then they got the details which were almost exactly the opposite of what was presented at the meeting.

In his budget he is cutting taxes. Both income and sales taxes will see reductions. As the Akron Beacon Journal pointed out this morning the primary beneficiaries of those cuts will be the top 1%. In fact the problem will be aggravated by another cut to business taxes of 50% on corporate income up to $750,000.

How he plans to balance the budget in coming years is still in question.

No Justice? No Peace!
