Republicans so worried about the debt, yet they cause most of it.

    Why because the debt does not matter.

    And what happened to the debt every year the democrats were in charge?

    Sounds like we need the Gingrich Congress back, along with a president either in agreement or pragmatic enough to realize he really has no choice.

    Even after pointing out how fucked up the welfare state is, created by the great liberal LBJ who hated *******, you liberals just keep that liberal thinking.

    There is taxing, and there is spending.

    Both need to be reduce dramatically.

    Waaaaaaaaaaaay too much government.

    Democrats have controlled Congress all of four years out of the last 20 and yes, the debt increased under their tenure as well. Who said they were any better? The difference is they don't make it a huge campaign issue the way the Republicans do. The Democrats are pretty honest about wanting to blow our tax dollars. The Republicans constantly claim fiscal responsibility, yet show none whatsoever.

    What pro-big government types never understand is that the will come a time when that big government is run by people who disagree with them.

    Most of that was debt from prior administrations. Obama's policies and initiative added about a quarter of that. The downgrade was because of the no compromise position by both parties.

    Which is why we need a lot more TEA party types and to drain the swamp in DC. If nothing else, Trump is peeling back the masks so many are hiding behind. The more Congressional Republicans blindly oppose him, the more obvious their allegiance to something other than their professed economic conservatism becomes.

    Trickle down is not the way to fiscal sanity (we all know how insanity is defined). Giving to the rich, and that includes their beneficiaries would add more to the deficit and thus the debt. Cutting taxes to the very wealthy, is the Ryan / Trump / McConnell idea of reform.

    Cutting Medicaid, Social Security, minimum wages and attacking labor unions seems to be the Republican's goal, and is in best interest of the Power Elites; their supporters never consider the cost deficit if they succeed.
