A fascinating statistic is making the rounds out here in the Land of Ordinary Americans.
It involves the national debt, which is at its breaking point, and it speaks to the hypocrisy among Republicans who insist on spending cuts to counteract increasing the nation’s debt limit.
It’s this: One-quarter of the nation’s total debt was acquired during the four years that Donald Trump served as president. Furthermore, let us never forget — after all, Donald Trump damn sure won’t — that he is a Republican.
Thus, it becomes imperative to put this GOP yammering about spending cuts in its proper perspective.
Republicans in Congress were all but stone-cold silent during the time Trump was amassing the enormous debt. They weren’t demanding spending cuts the way they are these days with a Democratic president sitting in the Oval Office.
Why do you suppose that’s the case? Oh, I know! It’s politics, man, pure and simple.
