Response to PETRUS (Reply #14)

15. Moving the goal post?

Saying it's "bunk" doesn't make for much of an argument.

When Reagan's massive deficit strategy didn't work the GOP Moved to the massive debt model... to sabotage Clinton's debt paydown and run up as much debt as possible. Are you suggesting they've just adopted a new economic model that debt doesn't matter? Or that they never abandoned Reagan's idea to undermine New Deal and Great Society programs... actually the far Right is worse than Reagan. Reagan worked with Dems to save SS. Bush wanted to privatize it.

I tend to still be a bit on the fiscal conservative side and don't buy into MMT.

And at this point I'm beginning to question your motives for posting in this thread.
