Here is a new Conservative tactic: start calling all tax and spending cuts increases.
Here is a sample headline: “Republicans propose increased spending and taxes.” The fine print shows that while they wanted a 20% decrease, they are “compromising” on a 10% decrease.
Let’s start calling that an increase. It is the standard of language set by the Liberals, and someone with a loud voice on the Conservative side could make an impact by jumping on their bandwagon. At least this tactic could help move the conversation back into a rational channel.
