What makes people think that the gov can effectively address the debt and the recession at the same time?
Any economist regardless of political affiliation will tell you that addressing the debt and stimulating the economy are antithetical to each other. If you want to stimulate the economy, you have to increase the debt. If you want to reduce the debt you have to sacrifice economic growth. It doesn’t matter which party is in power.
To put it simply
To Address the Recession……Cut Taxes on Rich=Increase the Debt
To Address the Debt……………Cut government Jobs=Hurt the Economy
To Address the Recession…….Stimulus Spending=Increase the Debt
To Address the Debt…………….Increase Tax Revenue=Hurt the Economy
The American people have to choose between either getting out of this recession, or reducing the debt. We can either do one or the other. Doing both means doing nothing at all. Pick one and stfu.
Assrat- Cut the talking points and pay attention. The entire republican strategy is geared towards governing less and it still loses if they try to do both.
