Rand Paul and the Republicans were not worrying about the debt when they passed a 1.5 trillion dollar tax cut for the wealthiest American citizens. So it laughable when they suddenly care about giving away tax dollars.
I am an American who understands that paying for our military, our infrastructure, etc. requires all funding from all citizens which is paid in the form of taxes. Economics was core of my MBA program so I am trained in both macro and micro economics. If the GOP understood economics as they claim, it would understand that the Republican tax cut to billionaires is inflationary. Enjoy your tiny little bump in pay. It will soon be swallowed up by price increases in gas, groceries, etc.
The nation will hit the debt ceiling one month sooner because of the Republican tax give away.
