The conservative Democratic think tank Third Way has written a policy memo as to why the Tea Party should support the Super Committee making big budget cuts, as opposed to the sequestration that would happen if the Super Committee can’t come to agreement . Some examples of Third Way’s reasoning to support this version of austerity and not the automatic cuts include:
- 12,000 Criminals Evade Incarceration
- Possible Prison Furloughs
- A More Porous Southern Border
- Gun Purchase Delays
Basically Third Way is saying that unless the Super Committee gets to make big cuts to the federal budget, the automatic big cuts will make America filled with dangerous brown people and Tea Partiers will have a harder time buying guns to defend themselves.
Remind me again why any Democrat would listen to Third Way’s advice?
