Ryan Dismisses Deficit Concerns to Chase a Political Win on Taxes

Ryan Dismisses Deficit Concerns to Chase a Political Win on Taxes

House Speaker Paul Ryan has spent much of his political career warning against the pitfalls of deficit spending and government debt.

But that argument has been bent in service to another long-held priority, one that has political urgency for Republicans trying to hang on to their congressional majorities: tax cuts.

The tax overhaul legislation that Ryan shepherded through the House -- the Senate takes up its version this week -- would add at least $1 trillion to budget deficits over the next decade, even when accounting for economic growth, according to independent tax analysts. Ryan’s willingness to look past that, and his ability to successfully persuade his members that these analyses are flawed, shows how important the tax measure has become to Republicans.

Re: Ryan Dismisses Deficit Concerns to Chase a Political Win on Taxes

Just once again shows how most politicians are truly hypocrites. 

I am sure that part of this hypocrisy is rooted in the GOP furiously trying for any major achievement before one year is up.

(Note: I pretty much discount the Garland nomination which IS a big deal only because anyone they would have nominated that had any qualification would have been a shoe-in based upon their majorities in both houses of Congress)
