Somebody Is Wrong On The Internet

Remember that time when Republicans controlled Congress and the presidency and they shrunk the government? Oh, wait, that didn't happen.

But for Republicans, agreeing to those tax increases means agreeing to a larger government than would be possible in the absence of those tax increases. That undermines their real goal: Not smaller deficits, but smaller government.

They don't care about smaller government. Or the deficit. They care about taxes for rich people. Sure they want to kick the olds and the poors, but unless they can steal Social Security there isn't all that much money there.
