Republicans intentionally want to “starve the beast.” It’s a pattern. When they’re in office they spend a shit ton of money on credit and simultaneously cut taxes so rich people profit while the government loses its ability to budget for anything. Then a Democrat takes over, and Republicans scream about the deficits they created with dumb tax cuts that did not accompany any actual fiscal conservatism.
Republicans destroy society out of self-serving greed, Democrats build society out of compassion and integrity.
Democrats use discipline and knowledge. Republicans use ignorance and zero-sum economics.
