Republican Wants To Eliminate CBO

.

Is something making your lie look bad?  No problem.  Just get rid of it.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), known for his tendentious remarks on the House floor, argued Thursday night for the elimination of the Congressional Budget Office, a nonpartisan research agency that has existed since the 1970s.

Gohmert also disputed the CBO’s conclusion that extending the Bush tax cuts would increase the federal deficit.

“And despite the misinformation spewed on this floor, the fact is that when taxes have been cut, revenues go up — each time it’s been done. But we have such an ignorant way for CBO to operate, so for this political animal, and I know people say it’s bipartisan — baloney. CBO is not bipartisan,” he said.

No CBO = no bipartisan office to refute Republican bull.  Easy.  And for the same reason, Republicans are dismantling the House committee Dems set up to hold hearings on global warming.  Clearly, Republicans understand only too well that the more misinformed they keep the masses, the easier it is for them to fill their heads with their own special brand of crap.

It’s all about controlling the message and keeping their narrative of lies and misinformation alive and well.  As long as Republicans keep demonizing the mainstream media and any other source of possible truth, they get the majority of their base of mindless sheeple tuned in to the truth-challenged conservative media.

The LIE lives!  Heil Goebbels!

    Like those tax cuts have done so well for us poor working slobs. Trickle down economics my ass! Republicans, and many democrats, are repeat offenders. They just don’t learn. Or they care more about filling their campaign coffers.
