As readers probably know, I’m a little L libertarian.  So I don’t like “Gooferment” debt or taxes.  But when you cut taxes, you must cut spending.  Seems so obvious to me.  Now the “tax and spend
D’s — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC is the latest in long line of fiscal illiterates with big spending ideas — are essentially the same as the “borrow and spend” R’s.  Both are a plague upon the nation.
