Rand Paul to GOP: Vote “Present” on Dem Tax Hikes, Make Them Own Economy

I knew I liked Sen. Rand Paul. He has a long-term understanding of our problems. He realizes that with the outcome of this past election, the best thing for America is for Americans to realize that elections have consequences. Voting for a big government by voting for non-conservatives creates chaos.

Paul knows that if congressional Republicans compromise on this “fiscal cliff” matter, they will be blamed when the economy falters. So rather than compromising, he suggests, just give the Democrats what they want so that they own the economy entirely.

That’s what I’ve said for the past month, it’s what Ann Coulter said two weeks ago, and it’s what Rand Paul said a few days ago on Larry Kudlow’s program on CNBC:

“I have yet another thought on how we can fix this. Why don’t we let the Democrats pass whatever they want? If they are the party of higher taxes, all the Republicans vote present and let the Democrats raise taxes as high as they want to raise them, let Democrats in the Senate raise taxes, let the President sign it, and then make them own the tax increase. And when the economy stalls, when the economy sputters, when people lose their jobs, they know which party to blame, the party of high taxes. Let’s don’t be the party of just almost-as-high taxes.”

 

Then Larry Kudlow asks him if he would ”vote present for that in the Senate if that came up,” to which Rand replies:

“Yes, I don’t think we have to in the Senate. In the House, they have to because the Democrats don’t have the majority. In the Senate, I’m happy not to filibuster it, and I will announce tonight on your show that I will work with Harry Reid to let him pass his big old tax hike with a simple majority if that’s what Harry Reid wants, because then they will become the party of high taxes and they can own it.”

Amen. Such action by Republicans would be the greatest blow they could whomp the Democratic Party with, inflicting more damage to their brand than any other plan could even come close to doing. The Democrats are currently trying to destroy the Republican Party; let the Republicans fight on the same battleground. Though Democrats as a whole were the decided victors of the recent elections, Republicans have much more potential to harm Democrats than Democrats have potential to harm Republicans. In this way, the GOP has the upper hand. Now watch them squander this golden opportunity, as only the Republican Party can do, by not listening to Rand Paul, Ann Coulter, or, well, me.

The ‘red pill’ and its opposite, ‘blue pill,‘ are pop culture terms that have become symbolic of the choice between blissful ignorance (blue) and embracing the sometimes-painful truth of reality (red). It’s time for America to take the red pill and wake up from the fog of apathy.
