$3 Trillion > $800 Billion

Despite all the hand-wringing from Senate Republicans--and their cable teevee enablers--36 out of 41 of them voted for $3 trillion worth of tax cuts last week.


In the Senate, Republicans inveighed against “pork” — although the wasteful spending they claimed to have identified (much of it was fully justified) was a trivial share of the bill’s total. And they decried the bill’s cost — even as 36 out of 41 Republican senators voted to replace the Obama plan with $3 trillion, that’s right, $3 trillion in tax cuts over 10 years.
