[color=rgb(40,27,33);font-family:'sl-ApresRegular';font-size:15px;]Put simply, after four years of pushing the austerity budgets of the Tea Party, Rubioâ€”who is running for the Republican presidential nominationâ€”is calling for low taxes[/color]and[color=rgb(40,27,33);font-family:'sl-ApresRegular';font-size:15px;] new spending, with little concern for the deficit.[/color]
As a message to the Republican base, which hates new spending, itâ€™s a loser. But as a message for the general election, itâ€™s perfect and proven. Before there was a Tea Party, there was George W. Bush, and as president he wasnâ€™t overly concerned with squaring the circle of his priorities.
