Thread: Newsweek ‘The Swamp Has Won’

    Newsweek ‘The Swamp Has Won’

    Hard-right Republicans from the Tea Party–allied House Freedom Caucus condemned a budget deal with Democrats on Sunday that would raise the U.S. deficit. Their exasperation came as President Donald Trump prepared to announce another budget plan that would include trillions more in spending and also grow the deficit.

    “The swamp won. And the American taxpayer lost,” House Freedom Caucus Chairman Representative Mark Meadows told CBS News’ Face the Nation on Sunday of $300 billion in spending in the budget bill passed last Friday.

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."

    There was no battle and there is no war. It’s just one of many illusions to keep us distracted.

    So far mostly left leaning media reporting that anti-nepotism champion Ivanka Trump left White House Conf Call after question about her personal business winning Chinese Trademarks was asked. Let's wait till all the facts come out.

    Ron said that he would love to get rid of taxes- but that you have to deal with the spending first otherwise you are just adding to the debt. His son voted to add to the debt.

    We've dealt with this before, inflation is bad but dollar for dollar it doesn't damage the economy as much as other taxes, our economy is on life support right now, until we can get spending cuts tax cuts are better than nothing, the great danger of inflation is that it encourages excessive spending but we are already spending like drunken sailors with somebody else's credit cards so using inflation won't make it worse.
