Our national debt is now over $11 trillion. This is partly due, of course, to the Republicans need to fill the coffers of their biggest supporters through a tax plan that gives to the rich and takes from the poor in the form of reduced funding for those programs that provide safety nets for our most vulnerable populations.
Now if this had been happening under Obama, the Rs would be rioting in the streets over fiscal irresponsibility and the need to rein in government spending. But for so long as they are placing this country in unbelievable debt for their fake wars and wealth shifting ways, suddenly debt doesn’t even show up on their radar.
Party of fiscal conservatism, my sweet ass. They will run us into the fiscal ground and then blame poor people for the problem.
Fiscal conservative… Christian conservative… Evangelical conservative… all a bunch of mean spirited losers who can only feel good if they are making someone else feel bad.
