National Debt and the GOP
The huge debt we owe to the world was put into high gear by Reagan - when the GOP told us that we didn't need to pay taxes, and then began to borrow madly to be sure Americans had plenty of cake to eat. We paid no attention; now suddenly, the GOP gets all uppity and holy about this business. No wonder they didn't invite any of Bush's people to their convention.The GOP wants us to believe that others are the cause of the problem. And, yes, it's a real problem, and won't go away until all Americans, especially the wealthy, step up to the plate via taxes and vow to pay for America. The GOP has tried to give us the world on the cheap; it can't be done, and now the GOP is rushing about madly to blame others for its own foolish monetary policies.
