Are Republicans Responsible for our Soaring National Debt?
TIME REPUBLICANS BLAME DEMOCRATS
FOR OUR INCREASING NATIONAL DEBT, SEND
THIS LITTLE GRAPHIC TO SOOTHE THERE
I think the chart pretty
much speaks for itself. Nearly every single thing driving the current
increase in public debt — tax cuts, wars, the recession, and measures to
fight the recession — was a result of Bush-era policies that were
enthusiastically supported by nearly every single Republican currently
hanging out in Tampa. They only got religion after a Democrat won the
White House and had to clean up the mess they left behind.
Their success at convincing half the country that Barack Obama is
responsible for our soaring debt is surely one of the greatest political
propaganda victories of all time.
