“My party’s not known for worrying about the deficit or the debt too much but it’s time for us to start getting into that,” Mayor Pete says in NH town hall in response to voter anxious about debt. Says everything his campaign has proposed is paid for.
How is he running for president on the Democratic ticket? McKinsey paid him well I see.

Someone should tell him about the deficit under Clinton or Obama compared to Republican Presidents.

Republicans are only known for "caring" about the deficit when it fits their agenda anyways.

Using GOP talking points. I knew Pete was a fraud, so I can’t say I’m surprised.

his top advisor worked for the new york state IDC ("democrats" who caucused with the republicans)

he clearly believes in nothing himself but his donors want right wing so that's what he is now

I swear this dude was secretly grown in a vat by corporate Dem consultants using a strand of Reagan's greasy hair.

I think those are all just bad faith attacks. Republicans don't even really care about the deficit, they care about inflation and they care about starving the beast.
I do however think that most Democrats believe that it was smart for Obama to cut the deficit during the great recession or that the budget surplus under Clinton was a good thing.
I strongly disagree on both.

Gotta agree with this. I expected better from the dude, but he has no actual conviction and is just groomed by the influence around him.
I have never heard a good argument why it is okay to apply for that scholarship, and it pisses me to no end how normalized that shit is.

Revert the GoP tax cuts and raise them higher on the super wealthy.

Bam. Deficit is cut and programs are funded.

I've heard that argument and can see why since the Clinton surplus directly lead to the Bush tax cuts and in general, they could have put that money in the surplus towards social programs. Can you explain your stance? I'm interested to hear it.

I know having some national debt is a natural position to be in to some extent and it isn't a horrible thing.

Ok, I officially hate him now

Great! Now read his quote about the Tea Party and hate him even more!

“There are some, especially in my party, who think that the tea party is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Republican Party,” he continued. “But there are many others who believe that the tea party is motivated by real concerns about the direction of our government, and the responsiveness of our government to citizens, and above all the frustration with business as usual. That is what motivated me to run. And so while we may come from often very different perspectives, I believe we might find that we have a lot in common on that front.”
