Name me once during any time in the past 50 years Democrats were in control of Congress when the debt ceiling was NOT raised.
The debt ceiling has always been raised. Until 2011 when republicans lead by Mitch McConnell decided to hold the full faith and credit if the United States hostage, the debt ceiling vote was a quiet routine non-controversial vote which no one even even noticed.
Why are you pretending that your question leads to some kind of point here?
It really does baffle me how you two could be so praising of a political party that has…
Pointing out the utter absurdity and depravity of one political party is not praising the other. That’s common sense to anyone who cares about good faith conversation.
50 years of promising to tax the rich, yet never doing it.
That’s news to every republican politician across the country.
50 years of promising to fix social programs heading toward bankruptcy, never doing it.
You mean the ones they have had to fend off republicans from trying to destroy? That can make fixing issues quite difficult.
50 years of Democrat voters asking for government healthcare, best they can do for the the voters is Obamacare with a tax mandate on the middle class that funnels money directly to the pockets of the rich: big hospital and big pharma lobbies.
So it’s the democrats fault for trying to fix healthcare in a bipartisan way, and instead of some kind of single payer system that every democrat wanted and they had the supermajority needed to accomplish… decided to work with republicans and ultimately put in place a system they created and advocated for years.
I agree with you, we missed a big opportunity there by trying to play nice with children whose only interest was smudging their feces all over the walls. It’s just a strange retort coming from someone who is clearly on the political right.
