Inflation baby!!!! Wowwww we love to see it


The_Father_

Inflation? Not a problem if you don’t look at it and believe in modern monetary theory


no12reallynotfunny

Lets print itttttttttt!!!!!! God damn our grandchildren who will pay for it. At least that's how Biden is acting


The_Father_

Biden especially but every president after FDR basically played a role. Especially Bush onwards


no12reallynotfunny

With Reagan I can excuse it becouse it destroyed the USSR but the fact Bush senior didn't stop the spending as Reagan wanted created this problem. I hoped Trump would stop but nope.


The_Father_

Trump was never going to stop, the modern Republican Party as a whole doesn’t care about spending more money than ever conceived if they think it’s popular


no12reallynotfunny

True. Getting rid of the gold standard and creating the federal reserve are 2 of the biggest mistakes in american history.

“This round of tax cuts will pay for itself and finally reduce the deficit and isn’t a handout to special interests, I swear!” - every GOP president since Reagan


TurtleLampKing66

Imagine thinking the GOP aren't Keynesian retards


[deleted]

If the left can say argentina, mexico, venezuela isnt real left, the gop is sure as shit not real right.


choryradwick

Not really, the American right votes for the GOP. The equivalent for Venezuela would be the Taliban or the Saudis, aka an extremist straw man that they obviously don’t agree with


dirtysnapaccount236

Well atleast tax cuts help normal people. Unlike half they shit the left pushes for


VerfickteScheise

If you mean rich people or at least upper middle class, yeah totally


dirtysnapaccount236

My taxes went down under trump and I'm near of thouse things but okay


[deleted]

I mean, any tax cut helps the people that got the tax cut. They should cut taxes for everyone so everyone is helped by tax cuts.


zeclem_

Lolno


dirtysnapaccount236

Yes because my taxes went down and gas wasnt 3 dollars gallon l


zeclem_

and in return you got a higher national debt and shittier public services.


dirtysnapaccount236

Not really but ok


USSA_President

You're joking right? Trump's tax cut bill cut taxes for everyone until like 2021 or 2022 and then the tax cuts expire for the lower income people and stay permanent for the millionaires. Shows you who Trump really gave a fuck about.

[deleted]

Yes, almost as if the GOP wasnt a fiscally right wing party.


meatloooooooof

You see we need this money to bomb poor children in some 3rd world country, not to help those in need


majik_boy

Because the entire government is run by one person?


AnalogCyborg

"Look at those tax and spend Democr- wait no, this can't be right." - Every Republican who actually hates spending and takes the time to look at this graph...which will be zero of them.


Grizzly_228

I’m from Italy and here there is a say that when the Right Party is in charge they bring the Country close to Bankruptcy, then the Left Party bails us out and takes the blame so the Right Party gets elected again


Neopolitan5

They got the same problem in Australia, Britain, and America too.

rightoids don't understand graphs, they just parrot fox news propaganda


NotWorthLookingAt

Fuck all of them. Stop wasting my money. Biden's nearly $6T plan puts him [right up there with the biggest spenders.](https://media.nationalpriorities.org/uploads/president's_budget_2022_-_changes_from_2021_enacted_-_%25_change.png)

“When I look at only half the picture from *this angle*, it suddenly good again”


yuirghu

wait how did you spend less money during wartime


Grizzly_228

You can see that from FDR to Truman the spending halves and the same happens from the first to the second year of Truman. As of why it’s so high compared to modern days I think it’s simply due to inflation


Anon_Monon

Actually, money is just a made up concept invented by the cis white patriarchy to distract from important issues like queer slam poetry and regulating cow farts.

Nationalising the oil companies was the best thing Norway ever did


[deleted]

Because they put profits into a trust fund (capitalism in action) lol. Also, they managed to not get PEMEX. Mexican state owned oil company that, well, owns all the oil and has a market of 130m and is still trash stock, super in debt and has to be subsidized by taxpayers. The best thing they did was to manage to run that state owned company as a capitalist company turning profits hard intead of the usual state run organization that sucks.


MassiveVirgin

Exactly, unbelievable long term planning. Norway is a perfect example of socialist policies actually making a capitalist system better. Now they have the worlds largest public investment fund, and with the profits they supplement their public services leading to one of the worlds highest quality of life for citizens. All without the need for higher taxes. Venezuela is another example of nationalised failure, they blew all their nationalised oil revenue in the short term and look where that’s got them. It has to be done properly and in corrupt countries barely any of the profits actually get to the people.

I remind my parents every now and then how Reagan signed more anti-gun legislation than many other presidents combined and they never remember. They just file that info away into a dusty corner and remind me how Walmart's CEO has to make $20M a year because they're trying to make a living too.


CallOfReddit

Abolishing the Gold Standard was a mistake


carlosequeso

Ya then says, “See! Capitalism has failed! We need to run everything now.”


thenumber24

Righties do the same thing when it comes to government. They constantly cut government programs and then complain that they’re inefficient, when the entire point of a centralized system like the state is to take advantage of economies of scale. But they know that, it’s part of their plan. They can privatize it and pass the contracts off to their friends for a quick buck.


Yakob53

If we got rid of tax havens...


Losingsteamfast

Explain what you think a tax haven is


Yakob53

Where rich bastards go to avoid paying their due share. A certain building containing several hundred companies comes to mind.

Depends, if the money is an investment to the regular people it tends to yield profit so it's a good investment. But the right prefers to move more of that money to unprofitable rich investments.

Why increase taxes when we can just print more money? The national debt is just a conservative dog whistle anyway


Clarbaum

Its ironic how much liblefts and authlefts like to print money, since it always increases the gap of inequality between the rich and the poor

> “Just increase the taxes bro” Unironically this, tho. Rightoids will screech about taxes but *my taxes went up* under the Trump tax plan, which cut the top bracket in half. Fuck that disingenuous nonsense.
