In February, the us had the largest budget deficit in Americas history.

Republicans are the party of fiscal responsibility.

And don't worry guys, those tax cuts will start to trickle down any day now.

Thank God we passed those tax cuts. Can you imagine how large it would have been if we hadn't?

Already paying for themselves! But don't you worry, Trumpy Dumpy will just create his own numbers. He's already installing his own ass clown at the Federal Reserve to lead us down the path of prosperity based on economic insanity.

We used a much more effective tool to prevent them from spamming. We changed the layout on the forums. :P

Ssshh. It's all the Republicans fault, ignore the man behind the curtain.

If we can keep them fighting each other nobody will notice until there is nothing left to loot.

Republicans will care about the deficit when the next president is Democrat.

Congress is giving away all the American money to foreigners. They won't use money to help the U.S. homeless or U.S. veterans, they will just give away the money to Mexicans and other foreigners.

How do you think all those Mexicans can afford to drive aimlessly around U.S. cities all day long like now days? Gangs, illegals, etc. Congress foots their bills. Welfare payments, free gas money, who knows what all else.

Congress, and the U.S. for that matter, ain't got no money because it all goes to Mexicans.
