Ideology and Economics.

Yesterday, after the House passed the new tax cuts, Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) said this:
"I was born to cut taxes, and I'm proud of the fact that I was born to cut taxes". (NBCNews)
I have never undersood this sort of ideological appraoch to economics and that's probably why I am not a Republican. It seems to me that it is not just the taxes that matter but the way tax-money is spent by the government, but that requires new reform bills and the end of perks. The fact remains that it just sounds good to a lot of American ears, no matter how unfair the tax-cut may be.
Besides, if Dreir is "born to cut taxes" we gotta feel sorry for him. Someone should really tell to get a life!
