Balanced Budget Nonsense

Mitch McConnell, the senator from Kentucky and Senate minority leader who sees his main job as doing the bidding of the ultra-rich, had the audacity to say that elections don't work, so he wants a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, which would require a two-thirds vote of the Congress to raise taxes on his super-rich friends, which would effectively ensure that raising sufficient revenue for the treasury would be next to impossible (especially since "Pax Americana" budget expenditures are practically impregnable), and therefore New Deal and Great Society programs would wither on the vine, programs that generally benefit the middle class and poor; as if his friends somehow don't have the same obligation as everybody else to pay their fair share of taxes and contribute to the greater national domain that they have so greatly benefitted from.

McConnell's nonsense about balanced budgets, which by the way have been either rare or nonexistent in American history, is really a round about way of saying he wants a super-majority vote in Congress in order to raise taxes on his masters & friends that pay for his campaigns. As for his line about elections not working ... well, his party is neither in the White House nor the majority in the Senate ... in other words, elections don't work when his side doesn't win. You would think McConnell could be a little more slick with words.
