The Heritage Foundation is calling for the Republican congress to vote down the Trump-Pelosi-Schumer deal. Agree or disagree?

Last time I only got one Trumpista to answer a legitimate policy question. Lets see how many can do it this time?

My opinion is I think Republicans should stay out of this entirely. They clearly have no idea what they are doing and can't seem to pass anything.

The Heritage Foundation. What a wonderful organization looking out for the middle class and nary a thought to the concerns, wants and needs of their real owners.

Doesn't the name alone make you want to run out and buy a flag and embrace some "traditional American values" ?

Of course those values are only legitimate as defined by luminaries of the GOP, evangelical Christians and an odd assortment of internet and radio celebrities like Alex Jones, The Gateway Pundit, Rush Limbaugh. Pat Robertson and so many more.

They should stay out of the one small legislative success that Trump has gotten so far but probably won't and if they do, they will surely resurface in time to ruin everyone's November and December holidays with another budget kerfuffle.

Oh, please, please Republicans for the love of God don't crater the economy in an election year by doing that debt limit kabuki bullshit again.

My liberal heart just couldn't take it.

There is absolutely no reason why the USG has to issue debt. If the Fed is buying debt with money created out of thin air anyway, just remove the middleman. As long as people keep accepting the USD around the world, what difference does it make anyway? Low wage labor competition is keeping US workers' wages suppressed. There isn't any inflation except in assets. The whole system is an obvious sham.

Whatever...
Looks like we will never stop spending more than we take in taxes nor stop increasing the debt limit. At some point, perhaps soon, perhaps another twenty years, the USA will be in receivership and we will all be slaves to the oligarchs, just as the Founding Fathers intended...

As long as you put limitations on the answers by offering only the choices you see fit, you will never get the response numbers you are looking for.

As long as we dominate the nuke count, we can always tell foreign bond holders to fuck off, we were never serious about paying them back...

We should have put social security in a lock box like Al Gore wanted to do.

You do know that $5.5 trillion of our debt is held by us .... right? Should we just bomb ourselves? Are we also not serious about paying ourselves back?

You do realize that if we did that our money would become worthless and $5.5 trillion wouldn't even get you a hand job .... right?

Trump is using the same Liberals the Republicans were kissing ass on, in their attempt to "resist" Trump.

Liberals being the petty shits they are, are easily flattered by given free reign on legislation. Trump will have the Liberal establishment eating out of his hands by Nov. 2018 and every RINO useless cocksucker will be replaced with Patriots. We're gonna MAGA the fuck out of this Shit! Bahleeb Meh!

Mitch McConnel and Lyin Ryan are about as done as an over cooked roast.
