I am sick of the "deficit" games played by the Republicans...

When they are in power, they intentionally attempt to run up the debt and the deficits as high as they possibly can. They spend like crazy and pay for nothing. They double the defense budgets. They can never find enough money to spend. They have done it since the days of Ronald Reagan. It has been their strategy to prevent the Democrats from having any money to spend on government programs once they get in power.

Then, when a Democrat is elected to the White House, they start yelling about balanced budgets and huge spending and unsustainable "deficits" and the huge debt we have put on the backs of our children. They insist that we need to cut spending immediately or the world will come to an end. However, what fool would believe that if they were in control of the White House that we would have less spending and less deficits?

I am so sick of their bullshit.

1. Since the days of Reagan? You left out the Great Republican Depression Part 1 91 years ago and

a multitude of times in between that and the Great Republican Depression Part Deux.

They've pulled heist after heist and from 2000 - 2008 perpetrated the biggest heist in world History on the American people.... and got away with it!

Mitch McConnell's personal wealth went from 1.7M in 2004 to 44M in 2010!

I hate them and the entire world is sick of them too! Will the EVER be held accountable?

2. But they had seemed to have recovered with Ike, Nixon, and Ford...

at least in Keynesian economic sense.
