I actually do not wonder why.
Our country will run out of money by September because of our fearless leader’s stupid unnecessary tax cuts. Remember the first thing he did (besides the racist Muslim travel bans) when he was elected? He rewarded his rich friends and corporate donors- greedy folks who squeeked him into the White House- with huge budget-busting tax cuts. Filthy rich entities who expected tax cuts as payback for their huge political donations.
At that time I predicted that this would happen. Lots of people did.
Without taxes, our government can’t fulfill it’s millions of obligations. I don’t need to list them, you know what it takes to run a country.
Traditionally when this happens, Congress authorizes more borrowing. And more. And more. It’s been going on for DECADES, burdening our offspring with a financial stranglehold at some future point in time.
That trump pawn mneuchin is suggesting that we do just that again. And again. And again.
I havent heard him suggest something a bit more logical: rescinding the STUPID trump tax cuts so people who owe their fair share of taxes pay like the rest of us do. If he was that intelligent and logical, he would get booted from government like all the others who had backbone enough to stand up for what is right. Since he cares more about his own skin and not the health of our country, he is going back to the huge country credit card. “Charge it now. Figure out how to pay for it later.”
Fiscal irresponsibility on a MASSIVE SCALE. Corrupt and inept people screwing us royally.
If you are bored by all this like I used to be, pay attention.
Consider your own company or household financial health as an equitable parallel.
In order for you to stay in your house, drive your car, eat, shower, stay warm/cool, support your life, you need to pay bills.
You just cannot keep going back to the bank or your credit card company with a sob story about how your dog ate your wallet.
You need to work to to make money. You use that money to pay people you owe, it’s just that simple.
tRUMPS tax cuts removed a huge source of governmental income, and without that money, our country is in TROUBLE.
trumps excessive, expensive lifestyle has also put a huge burden on the government.
All this puts puts a bright spotlight on trump and his ability to govern the country and the rest of us.
The british ambassador was 100% right when he emailed his bosses about trump- INEPT in all ways, incapable.
Project this financial ineptness upon our global warming crisis and environmental concerns. If that guy can’t even be fiscally responsible, how the hell can he deal with the climate crisis???
Answer- HE CAN’T. He won’t.
WE have to.
