The Recurrent GOP Themes

The prominent themes from the GOP fit mostly into the following categories (I won't address them here today as I've talked about them in the past)

(1) 10 Years of Taxes, 6 Years of Benefits
Basically, this argument says that the Democrats are using dirty accounting -- taxing for 10 years and spending for only 6 and using that accounting trick to make the bill look financially sustainable.

(2) It Funds Abortion
This argument basically goes as follows: the Senate language allows the funding of abortions and the executive order that the President has agreed to issue cannot override the law

(3) Dirty Deals
The Cornhusker kickback, the Louisiana purchase, etc., etc.
