Dino Rossi talks a lot about closing the anticipated budget gap without raising any taxes. But how does he plan to do it? I’m guessing, he’s gonna pray.
See, that’s the usual faith-based approach Rossi takes toward economic issues, for example, like back in 2003, when he voted for a Senate resolution praying for passage of President Bush’s economic plan:
NOW, THEREFORE, Your Memorialists respectfully pray that our elected Representatives and Senators in the United States Congress support and vote to enact President Bush’s 2002 Economic Growth and Tax Relief Plan.
And Rossi didn’t just pray for bill, as Senate Ways & Means Committee chair he shepherded this resolution out of committee and onto the floor.
Well, Rossi’s prayers were answered. A trillion dollars in government bailouts later, were yours?[audio:http://horsesass.org/wp-content/uploads/rossi-bush-pray-ad.mp3]
