Conservatives just discovering concerns Democrats had for decades

Share

Don’t Be Surprised If Democrats Don’t Lose Big

Share
 

 Two wars that weren’t paid for. Huge tax cuts for the rich that weren’t paid for. TARP bailout that wasn’t paid for. Medicare Part-D that wasn’t paid for. Then they point and say, “Look at this huge deficit Obama created!” For months now, the “fact” that Democrats “will lose big” this election has been repeated […]
