How come Republicans have the political power to quash the truth?
The Congressional Research Service has traditionally been seen as nonpartisan and scientific. They find the facts, and describe them as they study them. But, and stop me if you heard me say this before, the CRS just tried to issue a report describing how tax breaks for the rich don’t help the economy. The rich just take the money and send it overseas. But tax breaks for the poor have a huge stimulus effect. A report about this can be found here.
The Republicans didn’t like it, and make the CRS pull back the report. The Republicans have a fantasy view of the world and they don’t want the truth to be known. So they just refuse to let our nonpartisan research service speak about what it discovers.
Republicans are dangerously anti-freedom, I think. They don’t want people to know the truth. They are purely selfish and only want policies that help the rich. They don’t seem to care about anyone else.
They aren’t a majority, yet they have this power? How did they get it? Are they smarter than everyone else? Or is it part of being richer than God? Help me understand how they can do things like this.
