    Biden is doing it on purpose. He wants to impose that central digital bank currency garbage and get rid of physical cash.

    Ahhh…..the DC Swamp….aka the Cesspool on the Potomac. Home to the congress critters that are spending this once great nation into oblivion.

    Tax cutting is a form of spending, too.

    It was there all during the free spending, debt-ridden Bush and Trump administrations, yet somehow invisible to Republicans.

    You and the GOP been singing this song for almost a hundred years. It wasn’t true then,, and it sure ain’t true now. Maybe you should sing it and it might become a white gospel song.

    That 8 trillion republicans stole from the middle class and gave to rich people broke the budget and put the USA behind everyone else in the world.

    Biden lowed the debt already but you wouldn’t know it from the screaming divisive liars on the right.

    25% of your false narrative “toxic national debt” cloud was formed in one term, four short years under mismanagement by the former disgraced president. One quarter of “ALL” the national debt ever incurred in this nation since formation.

    The deficit is lower under Biden. Trump increased the national debt more than any other president in history.

    Hoping the lie sticks, I see.

    The National Debt? You mean the result of the drunken sailor spending spree that Republicans always go on, leaving the deficit to be cleaned up by Democrats? It happens consistently, every dang time! Clinton cleaned up behind GHW Bush; balanced the budget, I believe. Obama decreased the deficit in years 2 thru 8 with every budget after being handed a Republican catastrophe. Then President Master of Disaster added more to the debt in 4 years than any other president in 8, and once again a Democratic president, Mighty Joe, is leading us out of the swamp. It’s that Republicon one point economic plan: 1)Funnel $Trillions to your donors, so you can get your cut.

    So you’re OK with trimming your single biggest line item in the budget? Maybe even reducing it to the point where you no longer spend more than the next nine biggest spenders combined?
