The March 22, 2013 Real Time with Bill Maher made a powerful point: self-identified Republicans, including those who call themselves Tea Party, are IMPERATIVELY certain that the answer to Americaâs woes is to slash government spending. But when you ask them to name specific cuts, they pretty much come up with bupkus.
This is what happens when people are insulated in the Fox echo chamber. They have had âmust cut government spendingâ as a mantra, repeated hundreds of times a day, and theyâve bought in. But none of these people have any real idea about what to cut, other than âwasteful government spendingâ.
