Even with the understanding that the only way our country can survive is to roll our debt over, why would anyone in the right mind cheer for this? What is there to celebrate over further enslaving future generations over mistakes made today? Mistakes that should never have happened and opportunities to fix and reverse requiring just a bit of bravery and responsibility. Republicans have completely blew it over several decades in acting as the party of fiscal responsibility, but the Democrats have completely lost all shame and rationale. Instead of humbly and apologetically passing a bill to extend our bankrupt country our representatives cheer knowing they bought themselves a few more months of salvation.
Could it be that these Democrats are still stumbling around in a persistent Keynesian fog, emboldened by their fearless leader Paul Krugman who is actually NOT embarrassed to publicly claim that our deficit has nothing to do with government spending?
The point is that running big deficits in the face of the worst economic slump since the 1930s is actually the right thing to do. If anything, deficits should be bigger than they are because the government should be doing more than it is to create jobs.Nothing sickens me more than an economist armed with a Nobel prize slinging around this drivel as millions of Americans impressed by his credibility scoop up this Kool-aid. Read the comments section, Krugman can say no wrong and yet he continues to push policies and ideas that have been failing for 80 years. Now you see the poison of Keynesian infiltration inside politics, what politician would ignore an economist that not only encourages current spending, but insists on MORE of it?
Frankly, I do not think one needs a very compelling argument as to why every single Democrat who voted to raise our debt today should be voted out of office in exactly 8 months. This video should be enough.
