What they really mean is, “We’ll slow cutting taxes so that when the shortfalls hit hard we won’t be in office any more and we can blame liberals for the problems.

It’s not like the American people have long attention spans or anything.”

or it means..”We didn’t mean to affect the richest along with everyone else in a negative way with our dramatic Kansas tax cuts. We will plan tax cuts accordingly from now on so the middle class and lower class will shoulder the tax problems- in other words- our slow burn right wing business as usual.”

Another difference: They won’t rely on optimist revenue growth assumptions, a major critique of Kansas’ cuts.
“The governor [has] insisted on conservative … revenue forecasts,” Keen said.

Congressional Republicans aren’t learning this lesson though.

The potential shake-up comes as Republicans — including influential House Budget Chairman Tom Price of Georgia — push to change how the office makes its calculations.
Rather than having the office crunch the numbers on new policies based on the current economic landscape, Republicans would like to employ a method called “dynamic scoring.”

In that case, Kansas might not be a red state for much longer after this harsh lesson. Not that I think they’ll go blue. But it would be nice to have more swing states.

Come on. I can dream, right?

They learn jack shit. They are only hiding from the light like roaches. They’ll be back.

They learn to incrementally fuck us. Not all at once with bands and bunting and flowing speeches glorifying fucking. No. Slowly. trickle. trickle.
