After Voting to Massively Increase the Debt, Reps. Brat, Garrett Shamelessly Claim We Need to Cut Spending to…Yep, Reduce the Debt

This hypocritical, shameless crap from Republicans would be laughable if it weren’t so deadly serious, damaging, dangerous, etc. In this case, Representatives Dave Brat and Tom Garrett recently joined their fellow Republicans in voting to add $1.4 TRILLION to the national debt, mostly to give massive tax cuts to corporations and wealthy individuals. And after doing that, what do these shameless sociopaths do next? Of course: claim the debt is out of control, but that it’s all a “spending problem,” not a “revenue problem,” which of course means we have to cut…wait for it…yep, the biggest items in the budget (other than military spending, which these people always want to increase) — Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Was this predictable or what?  More to the point, who in their right mind VOTES for these wackos? And why???  In 11 months, we’d better throw them all out of their jobs or they’ll keep screwing us all over.
