The epic hypocrisy of the GOP on deficits and debt

By John Avlon

Updated 10:33 PM EDT, Tue July 23, 2019

CNN — It’s official: Conservatives only care about deficits when a Democrat is president.Under Donald Trump the deficit is on a path to more than a trillion dollars per year and discretionary government spending is growing faster than it was under Barack Obama, when he was working to stimulate our way out of the Great Recession.But what was angrily portrayed as generational theft and galloping socialism under President Obama is now accepted with all the outrage of a cow chewing its cud.Everyone in Washington seems to suddenly accept the economic and political benefits of government spending, as the GOP hopes to keep the stock market goosed past Trump’s reelection. While it’s great that Washington appears to have avoided another truly stupid, self-inflicted government shutdown, Congress is whistling past the graveyard. That’s because deficits are growing while the economy is booming — up 23% in the first nine months of the fiscal year alone. That’s not supposed to happen. And there will be hell to pay when the remorseless math of rapidly falling tax revenue kicks in during the next downturn.
That is very bad news for those of us who will be left to clean up the mess after Donald Trump has left DC. Because there is no way that Democrats are ever going to fall for the inevitable Lucy and the Football moment that will come when conservatives say that it’s time to rein in spending.

No less than Rush Limbaugh just admitted the whole thing was a conservative con job, telling a caller: “All this talk about concern for the deficit and the budget has been bogus for as long as it’s been around.”During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump promised to eliminate America’s then-$19 trillion-dollar debt in eight years. Anyone who believed that fell for the Don’s Con — after all, this was the self-styled “King of Debt” talking. Under Trump, the national debt just passed $22 trillion for the first time in history.The danger is that the political benefit of breezy lies seems to have been codified.  ...Republicans who constantly talk about fiscal discipline and then deliver increased deficits and debt.

And it’s too much to expect that yet another Democratic president is going to be more fiscally responsible than the Republicans who constantly talk about fiscal discipline and then deliver increased deficits and debt.

It’s a story we’ve seen repeatedly since Ronald Reagan.  Bill Clinton was famously the last president to preside over a budget surplus and by 2014 Barack Obama had gotten our deficits to half of what they are today under Donald Trump, despite the Great Recession. Because of the sequestration deal that was just taken off the books in this latest budget deal, Obama presided over a reduction in discretionary government spending of nearly 2% per year in his second term.

During the last Republican presidency of George W. Bush, a group of conservatives bitterly criticized its drift on deficits and debt. Indiana Gov.  Mike Pence slammed the “profound loss of credibility on issues of fiscal discipline”, saying that “big government conservatism is a failed experiment.” Now that he is Vice President, Pence has been not so much muted as neutered on the issue. But no doubt, he’ll find a way to blame Democrats when we reap the whirlwind for the actions taken in his administration’s name.

WHEN CORPORATION CEOs PAY THEMSELVES EXORBITANT SALARIES THEY RIP OFF THEIR INVESTORS & THE PUBLIC, & IT IS EVERY AMERICAN'S RIGHT & RESPONSIBILITY TO CALL THEM OUT FOR IT!
Image
AND IT IS TIME FOR THE 99% OF US TO DEMAND THAT THESE OVERPAID SCUMBAGS AT LEAST PAY PROGRESSIVE MARGINAL GRADUATED TAXATION LIKE EVERY HARD WORKING POOR, MIDDLE-CLASS & BARELY RICH AMERICAN INSTEAD OF SKATING ON TAXES WITH EFFECTIVELY REGRESSIVE FLAT TAXES ABOVE $600K!

IT IS WAY PAST TIME TO SHIFT ALL TAX BRACKETS UP!  FDR WAS RIGHT & RONNIE CLOWN WAS A TOOL FOR THESE GREEDY BASS TURDS!

Only in YOUR warped liberal mind.  You're actually dumb enough to believe that things are SO much better now than they were with the booming economy, closed border, minimal inflation, and gas prices under $2 a gallon that we had under President Trump.

Someone as dumb as you deserves to be ridiculed unmercifully and then summarily ignored for your stupidity.

Stop your lying you liberal dickhead!  You know damn well how Trump fixed the broken border that Obama purposely kept open, you just refuse to admit it even when it's confirmed by the far left media like NPR.  And you idiots cheer Biden for stealing the funds THAT CONGRESS APPROPRIATED for the border wall WHICH THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE COUNTRY VOTED FOR AND STILL WANTS!
Immigration Grinds To A Halt As President Trump Shuts BordersMarch 18, 20205:26 PM ETNPR by JOEL ROSE
President Trump plans to seal off the U.S-Mexico border to migrants under a law intended to protect the country from communicable disease — a move that comes as the U.S. immigration system grinds to a halt in response to the growing coronavirus pandemic.

At a press conference Wednesday, Trump said the southern border would not close completely. But the move would allow the administration to quickly deport asylum-seekers and other migrants who cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally without due process.
Care to provide any evidence of YOUR idiotic claims that Trump is a sick psychopath or a dictator?  Or is it all just the same drivel you've been screeching about for 5 years even after it's all been proven to be Democrat lies?

All I'd ever admit is the truth!  Trump STOPPED the vast majority of illegals with a wide range of legislation BESIDES the building of the wall WHICH WAS NOT COMPLETED BECAUSE BIDEN STOPPED ITS CONSTRUCTION AND STOLE THE MONEY THAT WAS APPROPRIATED BY CONGRESS TO BUILD IT!

And now you think you can lie about the millions of illegals that Biden is welcoming in?  You LIKE the idea of keeping those kids in cages?  You LIKE how Biden is giving them all free smartphones while dopes like you get to pay for them?  How about healthcare?  Your diaper-wearing idiot GIVES FREE HEALTHCARE to illegals while taxpayers pay for it through the nose!  Do you LIKE that American citizens were forced to wear masks and get vaccinated while ILLEGALS who have DOZENS of communicable diseases don't need to follow those guidelines while they're being transported all around the country, and can infect thousands?  Tell us how happy it makes you feel that ILLEGALS are permitted to jump in line ahead of those law-abiding migrants WHO FOLLOWED THE LAW and applied for LEGAL citizenship?  Give us your great insight as to how many Americans will die from the illegal drugs that are now coming across the border freely.  Tell us how we've got nothing to fear when MS13 gang members, criminals, rapists, pedophiles, drug dealers, terrorists and other assorted criminals can waltz across our border without anyone to stop them, THANKS TO THE ILLEGAL ACTIONS OF BIDEN WHO SHOULD BE IMPEACHED FOR BREAKING HIS OATH OF OFFICE!
