That Word “Anything,” I Do Not Think…


Republican fiscal policy in a nutshell:

Thus, a news story like this one from the Wall Street Journal can report straightforwardly that Republican Rep. Doug Collins “believes Congress should do everything in its power to tackle deficits.”

Really? Everything?

No, it turns out. Four sentences later, the story adds as an aside: “That said, he rejects any talk of offsetting the cuts with new tax revenue.”

PolitiFact has rated Collins’s statement about willing to do “anything” the Platonic Ideal of Truth. After all, he’s a deficit hawk!
