Economic Stimulus

When times are good, conservatives (read, "Republicans") call for tax cuts. When times are bad, conservatives also call for tax cuts. Why do they bother trying to provide a rationale for this? Why don't they just admit that it's the only idea they have? Don't they realize that millions of Americans are already going to pay lower taxes this year because they don't have jobs?
