First we institute a massive tax cut for the rich and corporations. This balloons the deficit. Our deficit is higher than it ever was in history. The Republicans, who are supposedly the fiscally conservative party that blasted Obama for his deficits, have been awkwardly quiet about this.
The “Trump Economy” as we call it is artificially pumped up by the massive debt we’re accumulating to pay for the tax cuts. Our grandchildren will be paying for this.
We’re borrowing money, largely from China, to make up for the deficit.
Now we’re placing tariffs on Chinese goods, which American consumers pay for in the end. Our farmers are hurt in the process.
Let me get this straight:
We are borrowing money from China to pay our farmers not to sell their crops to China.
We have dilettantes running our country.

Concise and to the point, I posted it on Facebook.
I posted this earlier today on the Facebook page for the Idaho Democratic Discussion. There have been several positive comments posted. Perhaps a couple will choose to follow your blog. If you can access the website you might find the comments interesting.
Hm, can’t find you on FB. Do you have a link to the post?
This my FB link. https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000108521888. I hope that works. If it helps I am in Idaho and the picture is me and my wife. Not sure how Phil Ward’s here.
