Where is the Tea party now that their party

has just ticked up the national deficit by 42% OVER LAST YEAR? Fuckers, suckers ... 'come out , come out where ever you are' ...


The federal deficit in May reached $208 billion, surging 42 percent over last Mays monthly deficit figure, according to new Treasury Department data released Wednesday.

The figure put the cumulative deficit for the eight months of fiscal 2019 at $739 billion, within range of the full 2018 deficit, which amounted to $779 billion, according to the Treasury figures. Treasury estimates that the full deficit will exceed $1 trillion by the time the fiscal year wraps up at the end of September.

2. The whole deficit-hate GOP was a lie--

They just want power.

Democratic presidents reduce the deficit-- Carter and Clinton balanced the budget, for heaven's sake. Obama reduced the deficit enormously.

The GOP gets into power by yelling about deficits, then doubles and triples it.

Lying liars.

13. And in 2021, as the democratic President is facing an enormous deficit and debt,

the rightwing Fever swamp and the mouthbreathers that vote for them will assign all the deficit for the four years of Trump to the democrat, just like they assigned most of Bush Jr's deficits and debt to President Obama.

Since something like 1902, if the country wants lower budget deficits, and lower total debt, and higher economic growth, electing a democratic President and along with a democratic Congress has been the ticket to get those things.

5. Deficits

BHO s last deficit in 16 was $200B. Many think trump is headed for a $1.5T deficit this year. I think the Rs will use this to starve Medicaid, Medicare and SS.

7. The "grass roots" tea party was organized by a long time republican operative and by the use of ....

.... money from the Koch Brothers and ALEC and it found fertile ground in millions of
Americans that were pissed off now that a black man was President and overtime it has
morphed into "the Freedom Caucus." The deficit was just a convenient talking point
because they could say a n****r is President.

Now you might have everyday dumb fuck Americans in it but it was in no way an organic
grass roots movement.

Many of the Tea Party/Freedom Caucus types live in "a Fox News bubble," and have
little connection to reality .... did you know that Hillary had somebody murdered to
cover up Bill Clinton's cocaine ring?

10. The names may change, but it's usually the same suspects

We had Anti-Communists in '50s and '60s, the Silent Majority during the Nixon years, Reagan's Moral Majority in the '80s and '90s, then Tea Partiers and now Trump's Deplorables. These movements change identities over time, but their core beliefs remain the same: conservatism, religious fundamentalism, anti-science and anti-intellectualism, misogyny, racism, homophobia, anti-semitism, islamophobia, xenophobia, white nationalism and nativism. The common denominator is always Republicanism.
