You are an absolute troll, but I will defuse your leftist talking point rant. The country has not defaulted and will not default. That is simply a scare tactic from the left (which you are reiterating). The debt ceiling has been used by both parties for years as a forced means of compromise. It has led to some meaningful reforms in the past and will this time as well, regardless of the bluster from the left. If we can achieve some real bipartisan cuts in spending, it will be a win (not just for Republicans, but for the American people). Social Security is not funded by federal income tax, so is not in danger of being cut, as it is not discretionary spending. It is funded by FICA (both the employee and employer contributions). That is another scare tactic from the left. Democrats had 2 years with complete control of government and did nothing to address the dwindling reserve, so don't act like Democrats have provided a solution to the Social Security issue. They have simply kicked the can down the road, like every other administration (left or right).
The national flat tax will never fly, it's just Politi speak. It's like when Democrats propose Medicare for all or universal basic income. They say it to enliven their base during election season, but it will never happen. Santos, MTG and Boebert are fools. So are AOC, Sanders, and the Squad. Both sides have idiots on their fringe. Your father (if indeed he exists) should be more enraged by the price of gas, eggs, and the dwindling of his net worth the past year that resulted from Biden's failed economic policies. You should be angry about the prospect of getting drafted to fight in a world war in Ukraine or China in the near future, the price of your college education that has been inflated by the army of DEI officials on campus and teacher benefit packages that far exceed those in the private sector, and the fact that Biden used you with the promise of student loan forgiveness (that he knew he lacked the authority to forgive via executive order and will be overturned by the courts, instead of including it in a spending bill where it actually could have survived given the Democratic majority in the senate and house at the time).
