Oscar: Howse come Republican peoples want to cut Medicare and education and stuff like that?
MacIntosh: They also want to cut taxes again for the wealthy.
Oscar: Yeah…howse come?
MacIntosh: They say we have to cut the national debt so we don’t burden the younger generations of Americans.
Oscar: That’s nice they is thinking about their babies.
MacIntosh: So the way they want to do that is to eliminate services the younger generation needs, like education, give the money to rich folks, simultaneously protecting the benefits given to the generation that ran the debt up in the first place, so the younger generation still has the debt, even greater debt, but they also don’t get the services.
Oscar: So theys want young people to pay for stuff they will never get?
Oscar: Plus they wants young people to pay for stuff the older generation got but didn’t pay for?
MacIntosh: It’s a great gig if you can get it.
Oscar: Why do they call it the Ryan budget?
MacIntosh: Because no one else was stupid enough to take credit for it.
Oscar: The Republican peoples say they don’t want to destroy Medicare…just change it.
MacIntosh: Yep. They want to provide vouchers you can use to buy private insurance.
Oscar: What’s wrong with that?
MacIntosh: The vouchers won’t help if you can’t get insurance.
Oscar: Which is one of the reasons they started Medicare in the first place.
MacIntosh: And, if you are under 55, you have to save another $180,000 to cover the cost of insurance not covered by the vouchers.
Oscar: Is that the kind of change Republicans can believe in.
MacIntosh: Yep…it’s like saying we didn’t want to destroyHiroshima… just tidy up their city a little.
Oscar: Its like saying the tsunami didn’t destroyJapan… it just got the freeloaders off the beach.
MacIntosh: We don’t want to behead you King Louis, just make it easier to get your necklace on and off.
Oscar: Eggszactly. Who would believe that booogaloo?
MacIntosh: The same people that believe cutting taxes for the rich creates jobs.
