Have Republicans gone mad? Now they are opposing the payroll tax cut proposed by President Obama unless there are budget cuts equal to the lost revenue.
Aren't these are the same politicians who used to say tax cuts don't cause lost revenue? They certainly didn't demand any spending cuts when they approved tax cuts in 2001 and 2003.
Last year, when they opposed ending tax cuts for people earning more than $250,000 a year, they didn't support cutting spending to match that lost revenue either.
Yet now they are opposing tax cuts for millions of Americans unless there is budget cutting to make up for the lost revenue. They need to have their heads examined. A dose of professional mental health care would seem to be in order.
