Rachel Maddow on Republicans Burying Tax Report
On Friday night’s edition of “The Rachel Maddow Show,” host Rachel Maddow discussed the Republicans on Capitol Hill’s attempt to bury a report by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) that thoroughly debunked one of the Republican Party’s most sacred tenets, that tax cuts for the wealthy create jobs and are good for the economy.
That belief, known as “trickle down economics” could be called the central pillar of Republican economic policy, and yet, the non-partisan CRS study’s results have been pulled from the organization’s website at Republicans’ behest.
Congressional Republicans have opted for a similar means of dealing with a report out from the Congressional Research Service, the organization charged with getting Congress the most accurate information on any topic that it can, free of partisan spin or agendas. The CRS is who the elected men and women of the federal government count on to help them do their job by bringing them the unvarnished facts on any given topic before the Congress.
Nonetheless, the CRS came under immediate attack by Republicans, who demanded that it withdraw the report, citing an inappropriate “tone.” The CRS has complied and withdrawn the report, but it is still available at the Senate Democrats’ own site.
It sure seems like we should be seeing a lot more about the CRS report than we are seeing. It should be all over Think Progress, Rawstory, Firedoglake, truthout.org etc for a long long while.
I don’t want this issue buried I want it yelled from the rooftops…
CRS REPORT PROVES TAX CUTS FOR THE WEALTH DO NOT CREATE JOBS OR BOOST THE ECONOMY!
