the national debt exists, primarily, as a cudgel to stand in the way of funding basically anything that would genuinely help people out, only to be waved away when there's an opportunity to hand public cash directly into the pockets of the wealth

anyone who thinks the national debt is more important than decarbonizing our economy and halting climate change is not actually concerned about the future and is just carrying fracked water for the people who have plundered us into oblivion

Lindsey Graham can pick a battle over debt as much as he wants, it's going to be a helluva sell to people who have spent the past year in dire economic straits, lockdown, and pandemic-related injury

Well then I have a perfect option for Sen Graham: rolling back the tax cut for the wealthiest 1% —which he voted for— should help us get in the right direction.

Why the fuck would you talk about debt unless you're a shit stain and your motivations are shit, as interest rates are essentially 0 and the government can borrow money for free right now

This is literally the time to spend on massive stimulus. This is exactly the reason why interest rates are low
