RandyJ: Incredible. The writer blames the current deficits on "wasteful and ineffective stimulus legislation" circa 2008 (read: Obama), without the slightest mention of the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017", which could be described as massively unnecessary stimulus. The explanation for the enormous corporate tax cut from the Republicans who passed it was that their donors wanted it. What the donors want the donors get, apparently. What America got was a trillion- dollar- and- growing deficit. Cheers.
