It seems to me that President Trump (whose policies I usually like) and the Democrats in Congress have colluded to put more money on our national credit card–in other words, to spend money that has not yet been taken in by the federal government.
This means that our children, grandchildren, and great (even great-great) grandchildren will be paying for our current desires.
And the so-called “debt limit” is really a sad joke: It is just routinely raised every year.
I am a proud Republican; but, in all candor, I will have to say that the Republicans have been no less inclined than the Democrats to go along with this charade.
Perhaps it is all because The Political Class (which I thoroughly despise!) can get re-elected only by pleasing today’s voters–and not by worrying about the effect upon future generations (who, in many cases, have not even been born yet).
