Errrr, Debbie, they weren’t paid for yesterday when your party overwhelmingly voted for them.
Bonus: She then calls for Congress to pass legislation it passed in 2010.
Via Red Alert Politics:
[A]ccording to DWS, Democrats only opposed the tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 because “they weren’t paid for.” Which is why the Democrats were totally fine with voting to renew them last night… or why they had no qualms passing Obamacare, also known as the largest tax increase in history, into law without a clear plan for funding it.
“We need to go back to the ‘pay-go’ rules: the pay-as-you-go so that when you put a bill on the floor and it costs money, we actually have to pay for it. The Republicans, when they came in and took the majority back, got rid of that requirement.”
Apparently DWS forgot that President Obama signed the Statutory Pay-As-You-Go Act into law in 2010, which means that Congress does in fact operate under the pay-go rule she advocates for in the interview.
