What ever happened to those “tea-party” republicans after Obama left office? I really want a balanced budget amendment but I kept on being insulted for wanting one by those who say the “rich need to pay their “fair share”.”.

That is roughly 3047 dollars per US citizens added every month. Yikes!

Yeah but we’re spending that money on fixing roads and stuff right?

A lot of political comments are being removed. There’s another sub for that. The increase in debt during macroeconomic shocks is expected, and indeed desirable as a counter-cyclical stabilizer. This stance is apolitical. While the political accusations may be accurate, please refrain from posting them here.
