It just occurred to me…

It just occurred to me, though it’s certainly in the realm of “black helicopter” and “tin-foil hat” stuff, that part of why we may not have ended up with a (albeit stupid) $4 trillion dollar deficit reduction package that our illustrious leader wanted (to backstab us with – sorry, did I say that?), is because then it would actually be proved or not whether “market confidence” (ie: invisible bond vigilantes) would be calmed.

By not going the whole $4 trillion, Republicans and those of similar ilk can claim their solution has “never been tried” and thus we can endlessly find ways to transfer from the poor to the rich through continuous iterations of “deficit reduction” and then the inevitable tax cuts to swallow all the proceeds up.

Granted again, pure paranoid speculation.
