Let Them Eat Cat Food

Y’all will recall that GOP presidential primary debate where candidates were asked to raise their hands if they would accept a budget deal that had $10 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax increases.  Not a single hand went up.  It was pretty breathtaking.

Well, today on “Meet the Press,” House Majority Whit Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said there is no ratio the GOP would accept — not $100 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax increases, not $1,000 in spending cuts to every $1 for tax increases.

He said, “There are no new tax increases because you don’t need it.”  Translation — “Hey, old people, have you tried some of those new cat foods?  They’re quite tasty.”
