Because they’re a bunch of dickless pussies.
Mitch McCockless proves, once again, that we’re never ever wrong in our predictions of GOP spinelessness.
Summary of McCockless brilliant master plan?
Congress gives Ogabe carte blanche to increase spending as he sees fit but, wait for it, it can be stopped if only Congress can amass a super-majority to stop it, something that has rarely, if ever, happened in our history. If that doesn’t happen, the debt limit goes up automatically without the NSDWP having to lift a finger.
What’s the snag? What do we get in return? Well, we get the usual promise of cuts that will never happen and, to prove McCockless’ “genius”, if the debt increases get voted down without a veto-proof majority (best case scenario, as the NSDWP stooges would never vote against their Reichsführer and it’s quite likely that a few RINOs would support them), then Ogabe will have to veto it which, according to McCockless, will utterly destroy Ogabe as he’ll have full responsibility for the resulting Greece-like crash.
Which, as we all know, the objective Make Believe Media will be sure to point out rather than, say, lay all of the blame at the doorstep of the Republican party if they even bother to mention it at all.
Brilliant, we tell you, brilliant. Even if it IS utterly disconnected from the reality in which we live.
Short version: McCockless and his fellow Pontius Pilates get to wash their hands of it and leave the problem for our kids and grandkids to deal with.
Somebody needs to slice off McCockless’ neckticles and shove them down his throat until he chokes.
