Does it matter who won the election? If either Republicans or Democrats win the White House, we’ll still have a crushing federal deficit. Bipartisanship leads to both parties agreeing to increase spending.

Since the “Great Recession,” the federal budget deficit has increased from a “mere” $10 trillion to nearly $20 trillion during the Obama administration. During the Trump administration, we have witnessed continuing deficits.

You are entirely correct, the present leadership in Washington, along with the corrupt pathetic membership in Congress will bankrupt this country.

Let’s be honest, the majority of Congress should be arrested and tried for treason.
