Tired of Republican spawned debt

I am so weary of Republican presidents and Congress members creating more and more debt. George W. Bush and his Republican Congress spent $3 trillion on two wars and didn’t pay for them.

Donald inept, dishonest Trump and his dreadful, enabling Senate have unashamedly given tax breaks which especially benefited those who do not need them. They put our beloved democratic republic another $1.5 trillion in debt.

Evidently their implausible theory is, as Reagan called it: “The trickle down theory.” Let’s see, does it work? When Reagan was in office, 25,000 farmers went bankrupt.

Under George W. Bush, the economy crashed. You all know what’s happening under Trump. He watches TV, goes to rallies, tweets, golfs and covers up crimes with the help of his attorney general.
