Trump said during the campaign that he wants to build a new, modern navy, too.
I guess all of this stuff will be paid for by the huge tax cuts he has proposed for the wealthy? No chance in hell any Medicare cuts that are politically possible (to today’s recipients) would save enough money even to make a dent.
Unfortunately, don’t expect a peep out of Republicans once $2 Trillion deficits become the norm – at least until the next Democrat is elected.
Maybe it’s time for Democrats to turn the tables on Republicans and become deficit hawks, given how this issue seems to resonate among the Republican base. Being a deficit hawk doesn’t mean you have to favor reducing the size of government – just spending our tax money more wisely (less on defense, more on other things) and raising more tax revenue, not less.
All Democrats need to do is a clever marketing campaign – repetition is the key! – showing historically how deficits go up under Republicans and down under Democrats. Repeat over and over and over again…
That’s a laugh riot bacon. Republican words like that are a smokescreen for their real agenda. You should be thoroughly ashamed to post such tripe over the Holiday season. Pointing to the ‘elite government class’ as if they were a group other then themselves. They fool no one except the undereducated clueless folks like you that have fallen for their lies time and time again.
