The GOP had such righteous indignation when they were confronted with the truth that Cheney still received a salary from Halliburton at the time of the rollout of the Iraq War. They were happy for the extra money that the top 1% was getting when they deregulated the banking and finance industries. They gleefully shredded needed regulations from the subprime mortgages market. It was obvious that the borrowers had no chance of meeting these loans and when this scam for the top 1%'s gain ran rampant it was obvious that a crisis was in our future. Back in 2000 many sources were warning that Bush was planning on destroying the social welfare network and have huge deficits. Who could expect us to believe that the GOP ghouls never realized that in addition to that big bro 43 would destroy our economy by starting a war without raising taxes? No other US president has done so as US presidents have always asked the US citizens to share the pain of a war by raising taxes for the war in order that the price of the war does not cause deficits.
