I saw Geraldo Rivera on Fox News’ The Five the other day. He was stating what little political courage it takes for Republicans to lower taxes. I thought to myself: Really, Geraldo? What little courage it takes? First of all, lowering corporate taxes will spur hiring and growth. Secondly, lowering taxes will spur personal spending that will help the economy. Lastly, lowering taxes may save thousands upon thousands of small businesses and millions of jobs.
If you want to talk about lack of political courage, you need not look past the Democratic party and Hillary Clinton. Please tell me what political courage is needed for government handouts, free college and free healthcare?
What political courage is required to tell the world we have open borders, please come legally or illegally, we want you on our welfare system and in our emergency rooms? What political courage does it take to tell 99% of the nation that you are going to tax the living crap out of the 1% and give it to everyone else?
What political courage does it take to promise all kinds of protections and benefits to every special interest group you can think of?
It’s laughable to think that the Democratic party thinks it takes political courage to be Santa Clause 365 days a year. The Democratic Party could not be less courageous.
