Instead conservatives react as they always do when confronted by facts and numbers. Instead of examining the evidence for themselves they: 1. Attack the messenger2. Sow seeds of doubt3. Impune the character of knowledgable people4. Invoke conspiracies5. Advance implausible alternate theoriesFunny I could probably find this sentiment over @ campfire discussion group with the exception that the word liberals would be substituted for the word conservatives. IMHO they would be both true. Both political parties are leading our country to bankruptcy thru their prolific spending. The vote between the parties [lesser of 2 evils] is merely the speed at which we reach that bankruptcy.I view elections now as entertainment. Similar to the circuses that Roman Emperors put on to distract the populus.Its gonna be quite entertaining once medicare is bankrupt due to the increased # of beneficiaries & rampant health care inflation & doctors refusal to accept any new medicare patients*. There will be much finger pointing from our duly elected officials casting blame. But no acceptance of blame as the issue was ignored by them prior to the bankruptcy of the program. *4 years ago my 95 year old uncle had a 6 month wait before one of best [imho] primary care docs would take him on. I fully expect the trend to worsen as time goes on.
