Smugly entitled turd, smirking the quiet part out loud:
“My conservative colleagues for the most part support Limit, Save, Grow, and they don’t feel like we should negotiate with our hostage,” said right-wing Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL).
Our hostage, the American people and the world economy, fuck them, you know.
Leaving aside, genius, that the hostage is not a party to the negotiation.
Heather Cox Richardson ends her great piece today with this:
Those taxes helped to pay for the [Civil] war and, after it, to repay the debt. And in 1866, when Confederate-sympathizing Democrats tried to undermine support for the government by changing the terms of that debt to make it less valuable, Republicans wrote into the Constitution that “the validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.”source
I know it sounds impolite, but fuck the KKK caucus.
