Debt Ceiling Politics

By Mike Huckabee

I hope you’re having a great Saturday and enjoy a fun and safe weekend. And please join me in thanking God that we’re allive. I was assured that if the Republicans didn’t raise the debt ceiling on Friday, the world was going to end, so the very fact that we’re still here at all is a miracle worth celebrating, don’t you think?

Personally, I don’t feel like compiling a recap of all the nonsense from the left about how Republicans are arsonists and terrorists and Nazis for not wanting to keep spending the country into oblivion. Just take my word for it that if anything is emitting a dangerous level of gas, it’s not your stove, it’s them. But I’ll share a few links to stories that feature something about this that’s actually worth reading.

This first one includes President Biden’s comments about the debt ceiling (he refuses to negotiate with House Republicans, obviously forgetting which branch of government is actually supposed to be in charge of spending.) He also repeats his laughable claim that he’s already cut the deficit by over a trillion dollars, which even the Washington Post called a “shell game” because he was comparing his huge deficit to the historically gargantuan deficits run during the pandemic. We also learn that his only stated “solutions” are, as always, to tax billionaires or cut Social Security for seniors who are barely surviving his inflation. As I noted yesterday, we already have record tax revenues thanks to Trump's LOWER rates, but it’s still not coming in as fast as he can spend it.

That story also includes Donald Trump’s advice to Congressional Republicans: don’t fall for cutting Medicare and Social Security to “help pay for Joe Biden’s reckless spending spree.” Instead, cut “hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars going to corrupt foreign countries,” stop “the mass releases of illegal aliens that are depleting our social safety net and destroying our country,” end radical gender programs in the military and stop reckless funding of “climate change extremism.” Sounds like a good start.

And for those who prefer more sensible solutions to hysteria and name-calling, try these links:

They make the debt sound so complicated the everyday American pays no attention. Really quite simple. We spend more than we take in. Gee, I wonder how a business would solve this?

Correct.
All we ever get is swamp gas from DC.
...AND REMEMBER, debt IS slavery.
Don't take my word for it, try it out if you must. A ball and chain comes in many forms, none more sneaky than monetary debt.

I found a good link with the Heritage Foundation regarding eliminating certain wasteful government programs. Maybe the Republicans will consider some of these.
