Why are Repubs still attempting to enact failed policies?
Tax cuts failed to create jobs. Their policies have brought us to economic failure. Is reality just too inconvenient for them?

They don't care about the real-world effects of their policies. Their policies exist for the specific purpose of ushering in a neo-sharecropper society with a permanent aristocracy and permanent uneducated, dumbed-down underclass of easily manipulable fundamentalists. It's about power, not results... More

Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly. Republicans have to seize every opportunity to cut taxes for the rich that they can.

Actually, they want the tax cuts for the middle class which is good for anyone who needs extra cash. Adding another trillion to the deficit is nothing more than a future problem that Mr. look to the future himself President Obama obviously is ignoring.

Because those failed policies will continue to benefit them and their core constituency. Its becoming pretty obvious that most Republicans don't care about America as a whole nation, they only care about themselves and the wealthy little nooks and crannies they bury their heads in.

Helloooo? The Democrats won. They control the Executive & Legislative branches of the government. Republicans are a minority now. They can't enact anything. You can't blame them for anything. Have fun.

Apparently the Republican bozos in congress (and many who post on this site as well) are in total denial that a majority in this country has rejected their ideology. We voted to swing the pendulum into the other direction. If Republicans still want to be a part of the process they better learn how to compromise... More

They have to push for tax cuts because they have had no new ideas since the 1980s. Cutting taxes didn't work in the 80s for Reagan/Bush and they didn't work for Bush Jr. When you have no new ideas but you are desperate to regain power you have to keep with the same policies and hope people have bad memories.
