Republicans and The Honest Approach

© Ben Sargent

When asked repeatedly about specific things the Republicans will do to cut the deficit, Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX) and Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) draw a blank. Finally, in desperation, Sessions says he wants to go back to the economic policies of the Bush Administration. Seriously. And Cornyn says he is waiting for Obama’s debt commission to report their findings at the end of the year. Yeah, the same commission that Republican politicians killed, forcing Obama to create it by presidential decree.

Nothing, indeed.
