Kentucky Democratic Congressmember John Yarmuth is ridiculing the GOP’s budget, which will end Medicare in order to provide tax cuts to the wealthiest:
After the budget vote, Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) labeled it the “Harry Potter Budget Plan.”
“Don’t worry about actual economic measurements,” he said. “Just wave a magic wand and it all adds up.”
“That’s not budget reality,” he said. “The biggest insult is that [the GOP] budget is totally faith-based.”
True enough, but Yarmuth gets one thing wrong. It’s not a Harry Potter budget; it’s the Voldemort budget. Republican beliefs do fundamentally rely on fiction, but it’s important to keep your characters straight.
