QotD, unsustainable doesn’t last forever edition

Arnold Kling on budget rhetoric:

When their side refuses to cut spending because it would be “cruel,” they are ensuring that future spending cuts will be even crueler.

When our side refuses to raise taxes, we are ensuring that future tax increases will be higher.

    “Because the budget is so far from being sustainable…”

    Just because something is not sustainable is not necessarily a reason to stop doing what you’re doing. I mean- if you can sustain it at least until you’re out of office, it’s not your problem, right?

    I have one hammer and one nail. As long as I never hit the nail, I can continue the attempt to hammer.
