I could have won a bet that, in here thanksgiving call to the troops, trump would make it about himself. No one would take that bet. Because, of course, we all knew he would. He did.

Imagine: GOP allows deficit increase of $1.5 trillion and yet Senate plan will raise taxes on 50% of households when fully implemented. How beholden must you be to be top 1% & major companies to blow $1.5T hole in deficit & still raise taxes on half of US households?

When u inherit a $1 trillion deficit, you have to cut it. You can end it all at once. So debt keeps climbing as deficit is cut. Read a book and stop watching Fox News.

Wow. has a holiday cup with gender neutral cartoon holding hands. Conservatives scream. A pedophile runs for senate. Conservatives shrug. Cartoons matter more than actual children to culture war conservatives.

It has become readily apparent that the does not understand basic economics. None of their strategies make sense. They WOULD in 2008. But you don’t use the same economic approaches regardless of economy. This is just “gimme gimme” economics.

Gee, what a shock. It’s almost as if Fox is a government propaganda service. Oh wait! It is.

He was handed a $1 trillion deficit. Tax cuts, two wars. He cut it in half. So...read a book. Stop getting your info from fox news.

...because building houses is a major driver of the economy. Rentals are not. Thats why the system is set up the way it is - to encourage home ownership.

....sigh. Yah, just like happened in 2008. Housing crashes makes getting mortgages infinitely harder, and costs for them go up.

...umm, no...because the flood of cash into a recovering economy will result in inflation, thus leading to higher interest rates. Mortgages cost far more. Value of HOUSE less, cost for BUYER increased. Perfect storm of catastrophe.

Mortgages are based on valuations. They are diversified -- some go up in value, some go down. This will be across the board down. Happened 2x so far under GOP. Both times, housing crash. Not rocket science.

...well, at least you'll have a tax increase to go with it. And forget about student loans: The interest will no longer be deductible. Tuition waivers? Now will be taxable even though no cash. This CRUSHES the middle class.

Once the "donor class" wrecks the economy out of unbridled greed, they can board their tax-deductible private jets, fly to Europe, and leave the rest of us in the devastation they created through their puppets in Congress.

Its so hard to explain economics to partisans. Let's try: Housing prices have built-in the value of property tax deduction. Eliminate deduction, housing values drop. Everyone w/ property taxes loses equity in house. Housing crisis. Banks fail. We've seen it before.

Which party best manages economy? Reagan to Bush 1: S&L collapse, $500 billion bailout. Record deficit. Clinton: Economic boom, deficit goes 2 surplus. Bush 2: Total economic collapse, almost $1 trillion bailout. Record deficit. Obama: Recovery, largest deficit cut in history.
