Isn't this what the Republican Party does out of habit (Tax cuts for the rich and increasing deficit)?

and the democratic party is so much better?

if you pull the string on the animal wheel while it's pointing at the democratic donkey you get:
"if it moves, tax it
if it keeps moving, regulate it
if it stops moving, subsidize it"

sound familiar?

The problem is, tax-and-spend still works better than spend-and-spend. When the government spends money, we pay that money, whether we do it in taxes now or in taxes later.

With the interest charges on $300,000,000,000 in debt, we end up paying for the money *plus* paying for the interest. The "tax cuts" are temporary, we still owe that $300,000,000,000.

The Democrats and Republicans both regulate everything to death. The Democrats regulate businesses; the Republicans regulate personal lives. The Democrats want to tell me who I can hire; the Republicans want to tell me who I can have sex with, and in what position.

Democrats and Republicans are both corrupt, though I think Republicans are a bit more brazen about their corruption--which is why they're usually better fundraisers.
