In the Meantime, U.S. Debt is Way Up
Posted by Mary Catherine Dunphy (+2723) one month ago
Check out this statistical graph to see how much U.S. public debt has risen in the last year after Trump gave his rich buddies and corporations a huge tax break. Apparently, the U.S. debt was only a problem for the Republicans when Obama was President.

No surprise at all. What is simply amazing is the stone cold silence of all the Republican douche bags who would whine about the deficit, when President Obama and Congress passed stimulus spending packages that temporarily increased the deficit. but ultimately led to the recovery that the Big Orange Douche tries to claim credit for, but every one with half a brain knows better.

Why, let's call out our resident Trump moran out on the carpet. Snowy Pains, why do you Republicans enjoy sending our debt further into the hands of foreign governments? Do you want the United State of America to be ruled by Russians? Why do you hate America?

Once Trump destroys the global economy, Putin and his oligarchs will be there to pick up the pieces.
