It Was All A Dream

It wasn't just that Republicans pretended to care about the deficit, or that reporters pretended to believe them when they pretended to care about the deficit, it's that so often politics/policy was covered as if "deficit=bad" was some sort of objective truth.

WASHINGTON — The federal government’s annual budget deficit is set to widen significantly in the next few years, topping $1 trillion in 2020 despite healthy economic growth, according to new projections from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

For some reason, only the Democrats didn't understand it was all a con. I hope they resist seeing this as their "opportunity" to run as the "responsible party." Eat your vegetables, voters!
