Rick Perry and the Big Lie - Page 3
Due to Republican voters utter disdain for intellectual thought Perry's misstatements can only increase his popularity. Well done, sir. Eat another corn dog.
Essentially Rick Perry advocates that 288 billion in tax cuts created zero jobs. Nil, nada, zilch. Yep, Perry says 288 billion dollars worth of tax cuts represented a giant goose egg when it came to creating jobs. If you are having trouble understanding this, zero represents what some Republicans think the corporate tax rate should be.
We can reliably assume then that since there is no positive correlation between tax cuts and job growth that therefore there is no negative correlation between raising taxes and job growth and we can finally talk about raising taxes on those making over 250,000 dollars a year.
Do not fear Governor Perry, this unintended consequence of deliberately misleading the American people will not cause your candidacy any harm. No one can say for sure, but it could be clear sailing for you all the way to the first Presidential debate between you and President Obama. At which point you will encounter a man who does know the facts.
Ultimately what could decide the 2012 election is whether independent voters prefer someone who puffs up and pounds his chest, but offers no legitimate solutions or if they prefer someone who can make a logical argument using facts, but has not figured out how to push his agenda past the Boehner led Republican brick wall.
