The Democratic Party's base is rallying around calls for massive social welfare programs like Medicare for All, a federal jobs guarantee and a Green New Deal -- all of which would cost trillions of dollars and potentially bust the budget. Yet a small but growing chorus of progressives say that policy makers are thinking about deficits all wrong: The red ink, they say, is not that big of a deal.
She's wrong they are a big deal in the end, there is just nothing to stop them from growing. Which is why I am against tax increases, it won't help. We are on opposite sides of the same coin. In her mind, why not soak everyone for short term gain and long term pain. Sorry AOC I'd rather keep whats mine when the pain comes.
