COMMON SENSE SAYS: You have no right to deny the increase in the Federal debt when your President ran the deficit up by trillions. Republicans are trying their best to make President Biden look bad, but the voters pretty much understand their motives.

After the Senate failed to pass a critical procedural vote to fund the government and avert a shutdown, Joe Scarborough and Jonathan Lemire discuss the “hypocrisy” of every Republican who refused to vote for the measure. “They’re telling Americans they’re going to let the country default on its debt, which would be economically devastating because they’re not going to pay their bill,”  Scarborough says. Amen!

Donal Trump once said, “he loves debt”. Trump built a national debt so enormous (even before the pandemic) that it’ll weigh down the economy for years, yet Republicans all of a sudden don’t want to raise the debt.

The national debt has risen by almost $7.8 trillion during Trump’s time in office. That’s near twice as much as what Americans owe on student loans, car loans, credit cards, and every other type of debt other than mortgages, combined, according to data from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. It amounts to about $23,500 in new federal debt for every person in the country.

Chief among the Republican disruptors is that [olictal hack Mitch McConnell. Even Trump calls him a political hack. This sorry excuse for a politician will do anything he can to regain power even if it hurts voters. If lawmakers can’t reach a deal, it will increase borrowing costs, delay Social Security checks and veteran benefits, disrupt financial markets across the board, and result in the loss of six million jobs.

Raising the debt ceiling doesn’t authorize additional spending of taxpayer dollars. Instead, when we submit the debt ceiling, we effectively agree to increase the country’s credit card balance. Yet McConnell doesn’t care one bit. Biden is having too much success, and he can’t have that, so he will do whatever is necessary to derail what voters need and want.

The Republican Party has no policy platform other than hypocrisy. The GOP Congress is no longer interested in conservative values unless it garners votes; a growing number of nut jobs has increasing influence over a party heading away from democracy and fascism.

The country needs an infrastructure bill. Our roads, bridges, and mass transportation are falling apart. In Europe, they’re upgrading their rail systems with bullet trains and new bridges that make travel from country to the country easy. Republicans could care less. Their tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations will haunt us for generations. Mich could care less because his net worth is now $32 million. Turtle man needs to go down.
