And then when the Democrats have to raise taxes to pay for this mess, they get demonized as tax and spend blah blah blah. So over it

News too focused on Russia to realize the 100 other things that actually matter. Sadly it’s all about advertising dollars and not about shedding light on important stories. Journalism has become entertainment

Caring about the deficit is a nice tool to try and hobble the opposition when they’re in power. R’s don’t really give a damn. Dick Cheney has a nice quote that deficits don’t matter.

They moan when dems are in office, screams bloody murder. Then they get in power and spend like drunken sailors. That’s the playbook, always has been.

Eh, that was in the Washington Post. I'm talking about the silence of Republicans.

@P2 - Too much on Russia? An adversary is actively disrupting our democracy and OUR president has trouble even admitting it. Literally just had first meeting to take action. Until it is stopped, I think it’s a pretty big deal and should get top coverage.

The same silence from Democrats on the deficit happened when Obama was in power. Republicans like to cut taxes, Democrats like to spend money, neither party has the balls to dramatically cut spending or dramatically raise taxes accordingly. So the cycle repeats
