Leatherman Groundbreaking


FITSNews – April 19, 2007 – If the slightest shred of doubt remained concerning powerful Senate Finance Chairman Hugh Leatherman‘s allegiance to overtly Marxist economic principles, consider it erased.

Sources tell FITSNews that Leatherman (above – littlest digger) spoke to a meeting of the House Freshman Caucus this morning, where he told the assembled Representatives that he has “never seen the economic benefit” of cutting taxes and that it was actually “better” for the state to have more money because that would grow the economy.

Wow. That is so Republican. Kind of like Leatherman’s “competitive grants” are so competitive. Anyway, shortly after Ronald Reagan turned over in his grave, sources tell us that two Republicans in the Freshman Caucus may have actually attempted to walk out of the speech in protest. Of course like economic freedom, protesting is also forbidden in communist states.
