Ding ding ding.
Anyone who actually pays attention understands the repigs rack up gigantic debts (which their supporters ignore) while they're in power.
Then, when they're out of power, these same repigs sound the alarm and argue that the only way to pay down the debt they created is to cut SS, Medicare, etc.
Nothing is more frightful and loathsome to the average repig than a strong middle class.
