Caution - the swamp is still intact

After Republicans spent recent years raising the debt limit without conditions, Snake King of Hades, Sen. Rick Scott, is pushing the GOP to insist on dollar-for-dollar spending cuts as part of a debt ceiling increase ahead of a July 31 deadline.

Such a move would represent a turnaround for Republicans after they supported debt limit extensions under former President Donald Trump without strings attached.

Sen. Ron Wyden-D, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said the demand was "a page from the Obama-era economic sabotage playbook, and I’m not going to let Republicans play games with the economy for their political benefit."

“The last time Republicans held the debt ceiling hostage they nearly crashed the global economy. Of course, they had no interest in holding the debt ceiling hostage when Donald Trump was president and they were showering mega-corporations and the wealthy with hundreds of billions in tax breaks," he said in response to BatBoy Scott.

If I'm not mistaken, the faux fiscal concern is what fueled the tea party. Which is all coded shitspeak for white nationalists.
This renewed concern can be seen as nothing more than more than weak reasoned obstructionism.
Why do they keep breeding?!

Actually that is a really great idea in terms of the genuine economic issues the nation faces. Just be sure that the extra money comes out of those with incomes over Half a million dollars..
