    Just wait til the young Dems get more power. They are going to tax the rich and balance the budget. Nothing will be cut. Oh, maybe some military spending.

    Unfortunately, we don't really have a strong Left in America. Most Democrats are Centrist Capitalists.

    More money to "stop the Russians " (NATO) is silliness -especially when NATO is the culprit for it's expansion
    and now "strategic ties" to Ukraine.
    This is a recipe for fiscal madness and a tripwire war
    Did you hugged Putin today???????
