There’s plenty of money for every damn program.
We have a Federal Reserve that prints money all the time.
We pay 0% on what our government borrows.
We’re in the midst of running up a $3.3 trillion deficit just this year.
Compared to that, this $74 billion is peanuts.
Meanwhile, Bernie is too much the company man to tell this simple truth: deficits don’t matter.
We’ve rung up well over $20 trillion in national debt, where’s the predicted inflation?
Japan’s national debt is many multiples of ours as a percentage of GDP – where’s the inflation?
But PayGo Pelosi, with Bernie in tow, will still spout about fiscal responsibility, which is horseshit.
She’ll compare the federal budget to your household budget, an even bigger helping of horseshit.
Trump ran on balancing the budget, he’s overseen all-time record deficits.
And the only thing McConnell will talk about, with Pelosi’s blessing, is what safety net program to cut.
C’mom, Bernie, grow a pair: Level with the public about MMT.
