So Predictable

On Sunday I wrote:

…how do you get support from the “deficit hawks”, the guys so principled that they can’t vote for anything that isn’t paid for? Oh, it’s a tax cut, so I guess those are exempt from principles…

On Monday Krugman quotes Senator Joh Kyl:

You do need to offset the cost of increased spending. And that’s what Republicans object to. But you should never have to offset cost of a deliberate decision to reduce tax rates on Americans.

These people wouldn’t know a principle if it bit them. They only care about the possibility of spending on someone other than their campaign contributors.
