Well, been saying it all along – Republican deficit spending is not the way to go, and people instinctively know it … or they would be spending in the same way. Now the Heritage Foundation has put it into graphic form:
NOTE: That $312,000 debt is NOT a mortgage on an asset which increases in value every year, while being used every day. It is wasted money – money spent on stuff you don’t want to use, store away, then discard.
Ronald Reagan preached conservatism and doubled our debt; Bush 1 nearly doubled the debt, but was voted out after his first term; Bush two did double the debt. So, in total we are roughly seven times a deep in debt as we were under Carter – who had the oil embargo to deal with – and they still call themselves “Conservative” and yell about having fiscally conservative policies.
Note, their policies include building weapons of mass destruction that even the military doesn’t want, while depriving the people of health and education. Bush even used irrational testing to justify cuts to education – he tested different successive groups and argued the second should be equal to the first or the school fails. Never mind that the test subjects are unrelated and have not direct connection to what was being taught in any given school in any given year… or even the baseline educational fitness (IQ, physical or mental problems, or domestic environment ) of the test subjects.
BUT WHO CARES!? AFTER ALL, THE GOAL IS:
THE MOST HARM TO THE MOST PEOPLE
