YES! Bernie Sanders to GOP: Spare me the lectures on YOUR deficit

Crossposted at Daily Kos

    I’ve got to hand it to Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), he knocks it out of the park on this. Republicans with their phony deficit concerns want to put the blame of their failed Conservative policies on Democrats and President Obama. But the money quote is right here.

    “Please, please, spare the lectures on deficit reduction.”

    ~ Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
