    Default GOP's plan to fight the recession

    (insert plan here)

    The only GOP plan that I've ever heard of is Rick Scott's plan to end SS, Medicare, Medicaid, while raising taxes on the middle class and cutting them for the wealthy.

    You can read all about it here because he was dumb enough to put it on the internet.

    Unless there's a mystery GOP plan they are keeping under wraps, Scott's plan to end Medicare is the only GOP plan to fight a recession. In fact, ending Medicare and Social Security will amplify and prolong the recession.

    A Republican plan to end Medicare and Social Security would be wonderful news.

    I just read all 31 pages of the plan you linked ( https://rescueamerica.com/wp-content...olicy-Book.pdf ). Could you point out on what page I can find his "...plan to end SS, Medicare, Medicaid, (and) rais(e) taxes on the middle class (while) cutting them for the wealthy?" I didn't see any of that specifically called for or anything close to it.

    Or is it you're just gaslighting us?

    Making the US a net energy exporter again and closing the borders will at least act as a tourniquet for the blood letting you WEF vampires have done to this country; from there, shipping costs gradually decrease and cost of consumer goods go down. Also we put you fuckers against a wall and bury you in unmarked mass graves.

    Undoing everything Biden's done to fuck America and the world would be a good start.

    I don't believe you read all 31 pages because the answer to your sophistic question is on Page 6...

    And then again on Page 17:

    And then again starting on Page 18:

    I want to know why you feel the need to lie to me about something as anodyne as reading a PowerPoint?

    This is just like you lying about reading HR 1.

    Couldn't be better. They should "trumpet" it now. Get voters familiar with it before the midterms.

    Good point, doesn’t come out and directly admit he wants to end SS and Medicare, actually doesn’t come out directly say much of anything, but it generalizes enough to allow the Democrats to jump all over it, as Mitch quickly realized in shelving the plan

    A couple of lines are open for interpretation, especially “All federal legislation sunsets in 5 years,” which Scott himself didn’t really clarify when asked it that also meant entitlements

    “Other than essential core functions, government should not be doing anything that the private sector can do better and cheaper.,” reminiscent of Ryan’s plan to privatize entitlements

    “No government assistance unless you are disabled or aggressively seeking work,” again, leaves room for interpretation

    “Socialism is un-American and always leads to poverty and oppression. We will stop it. We will shrink the federal government,” and everyone knows where SS and Medicare fall within the right’s understanding of socialism

    “All federal legislation sunsets in 5 years”

    The only way this happens is if you nationalize the US oil industry because they currently sell the oil extracted from under our feet to whomever pays the most for it.

    All oil is sold on global markets, which OPEC controls. So here's why your plan is stupid:

    1. OPEC will just cut production by the same amount the US increased it by, thus keeping the price per barrel flat and keeping transportation costs exactly where they are.

    OR

    2. OPEC ramps up production to drive down the price per barrel, thus bankrupting US oil companies which actually happened in 2015-2016.
