  •  Why would Republicans be interested in cutting the (3+ / 0-)

    deficit?  The deficit & debt are their money machine, their paychecks.

    The debt is made up of bonds from which the rich (Repubs) get paid the interest.  No wonder they always raise it when they're in power.

    We liberals often note that the Repubs raise the debt and we Dems get to get it back under control, but we usually assume that they'd (the Repubs) really like it to be lower, they just con't have the political courage so they charge all their spending.

    Not so, imo.  The debt and interest in general are the scam that makes them rich and us poor, relatively.  A feature not a bug.

    Remember hearing when they thought Romney was going to win that they put a lot of bets on interest rates going up?  Just before they flew their jets to Boston for the Big Party.  They must really hate that Obama's Fed has been keeping rates so low for so long.
