The GOP Congress used simple majority to put their white men on the Supreme Court - so why didn't they do the same to fix the National Debt?

    The debt is more complicated, they did not have $22 trillion laying around. They could have eliminated the deficit though. Both parties hide behind the filibuster, even when they are the majority, without “obstruction” they would have to face the consequences of their votes.

    Because Republicans only care about the deficits and debt when democrats are in control! Republicans always increase the deficit when they have the White House! It really started with Reagan!

    Look at what their last tax cut did to it! Trillion dollar deficits!

    Want to talk about how they cooked the books to pay for the "War on Terror" started because a Republican president COMPROMISED national security by ignoring terrorism until 9/11/2001?

    Because there isn't the equivalent of one single intact spinal column in all of the US congress.

      Let's start with defense spending first! Then we'll hear Republicans beating their chests in tears and frustration!

    Tell me what kind of spending cuts they can make without you screaming they hate someone. Apparently we can't even cut military spending according to leftists. They're trying to pretend they support them now to get votes.

    Because votes are cheaper than writing a check for $21 trillion
