I agree both sides spend too much. The fact of the matter is Brandon is currently President and Dems control everything right now. Are you okay right now with Brandon and the Dems wanting to spend an additional $5,000,000,000 and putting in place even more permanent social programs that will cost even more down the road? Yes or no?

Biden backs Nixon's agenda. The governor of Tx recently dropped the big government hammer on barring businesses from mandating the vaccine. the governor of FL did the same thing with schools.

These people spend too much and have too much power. Decisions shouldn't be coming from the top like this.
No one said it's one sided. Brandon and company are the ones currently in charge. Are you in favor of them spending $5,000,000,000 more and putting in place yet more social programs that will cost trillions more down the road? Yes or no?

I'd like to not only see limited spending, but a a very small percentage allowed on the money they send to other countries. And when it's sent to other countries, I'd like us all to get an accounting of how that money was spent in that country.

These are our tax dollars. We're gifting the world and we have no idea what happens with the money? I still say the elites in those countries keep it and give our pols a kickback. Money laundering.
