Jeff Sessions: National Debt Is Suddenly The Biggest Threat To Our Future


I'm getting really tired of hearing Republicans complain about the debt, especially certain senators named after the President of the Confederacy.

Does anyone remember Jefferson Sessions filibustering or even voting against a single spending bill or budget when the national debt doubled under George W. Bush?


Also, if the debt is truly is the Gravest Threat to Our Future Evah, then tax increases of all kinds, shapes and sizes would be on the table. So let's just return tax rates to Eisenhower-era levels, or hell, even Nixon-era levels and go from there.

Can't have it both ways, Jefferson.
