To the Editor:
Where is the “Obama Era Debt Clock” on Fox News? Did it break? Suddenly, the entire government is led by people with Rs after their names, we don’t care the debt is rising daily?
When the debt raised for idiotic things like guaranteeing all Americans had health care even if they have a pre-existing condition, or guaranteeing Medicare and Medicaid for seniors who worked all their lives to obtain it, or how about when the debt rose for disaster relief, it was a huge deal on Fox News. It was covered daily stating it was “Obama’s fault.”
We just voted the richest people/corporations (who never paid 35 percent) in the U.S. to get tax cuts. It matters not how high the debt goes?
In fact, GOP leaders like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are happy to add
$1.5 trillion in debt. We eliminated the estate tax to insure that estates more than
$5 million are not taxed and still allowing the pass-through deductions to continue. The debt clock is broken when these scenario’s exist. What about our children having the burden of all this debt? Now we don’t care? Now we have elected people in positions who only pass legislation that benefits them can we finally see that anyone with an “R” after their name is only looking out for the top 1 percent?
This is the third time in my life we passed trickle-down economics. It hasn’t worked the past two times. All it does is destroy our infrastructure and raise our debt.
