    I was trying to remember the last time somebody blasted me with a rainbow quote.

    I think it was some Sooner poster on the old National Board. Jeebus C. Feist, G.....You can't multi quote.?

      As much as I hate leading with my chin, I have no idea what a rainbow quote might be. I know quotes for DH Lawrence and the Rainbow, but not in the context of a message board.

      Not using multi quote but using colored text instead. It's pretty early 21st century and therefore, uncivilized.

    JPL - I am always intrigued by this argument. Statistically, the numbers suggest that Republicans are the spend, spend, spend party. But, your comment fits the discussion perfectly. Reagan was the first to use off-balance sheet borrowing. George W financed Iraq with off-balance sheet funding. The spending doesn't show up in the deficit, so the tactic continues to grow.

    Based on comments from Congressmen and Senators, using the Fed's balance sheet to pay for the tax cut is already being baked in. Yes, it disguises the fiscal health of the country; and, it eliminates the need for fiscal offsets. But, I happen to believe that if the Fed used the funds as intended and shrunk the debt, the country would be far better off.

    Republicans are great at selling this idea of individual responsibility and smaller government; but, it seems to always end up with more debt. In fact, the numbers look downright ugly. Now, Trump is not making any pretense of paying for his cuts. He is simply going to cut federal revenue and use the Fed's balance sheet to disguise the debt that he is piling on. Same old thing.

    Fake post.

    This thread was more entertaining than watching Porn on a Friday night.
