The radical commulist monster that's going to ruin America with tyrannical death squads and careless spending.

Speaking of careless spending, I've heard that under the spending habits of Trump our national debt has risen significantly faster. Some how the whole scare tactic of the national debt that was jammed down our throats during the Obama era has magically slipped out of public consciousness.

Washington Post headline:

The U.S. deficit hit $984 billion in 2019, soaring during Trump era

Since Nixon the republicans have been blowing up the debt by claiming that tax cuts increase revenue by stimulating the economy.

From something I read it actually increases the debt because they borrow money instead of using tax money.

By definition the deficit is the amount of borrowed money for that given year.

everyone in the know is aware that Republicans give no ****s about the budget, it's just about pushing austerity measures

if anyone is a hawk about the budget, it's Democrats

Democrats will gladly cut their own programs to appease conservatives on the budget

an issue they don't care about anyway...

I suppose they just won the message, Demmycrats are big spenders
