The billionaire-funded political corporation called The Can Kicks Back says that slashing Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid while cutting taxes for corporations isn’t a self-serving conservative grudge campaign. It’s just a way to bring the budget into balance, TCKB insists.
This is the story The Can Kicks Back tells you about itself, all right. But how does its Policy Director, Brandon Atchison, react when the cuts go in the wrong place? He gets apoplectic, demanding that the federal government stop cutting the budget for the Department of Defense. Why? Because those cuts distract from efforts to slashing Social Security, slashing Medicare, slashing Medicaid and cutting corporate taxes.
The desire to reward corporations and end programs helping the less fortunate is essential at The Can Kicks Back. Any budget cuts that don’t accomplish this are “irresponsible.” If you ever had a doubt, now you know for sure where the group’s priorities lie.
