Hmm, Dan Rather seems very worried that the GOP tax bill will unbalance the books of the federal government:
I've seen kids spill out their piggy banks and plan their allowance budget with more care than the Republicans in Congress are planning for the future of the U.S economy.

We’d expect nothing less from the Father of Fake News. But that’s hack-tastic even for Rather.
Where were you when Obama was prez?
The largest number comes from calculating how much the debt increased during Obama's two terms. On January 20, 2009, when he was sworn in, the debt was $10.626 trillion. On January 20, 2017, when he left, it was $19.947 trillion.

Does Rather really want to pretend the federal government was remotely fiscally responsible before January 20, 2017?
Dan, how disenginuous can you be? Obama solidified a one time TARP bill into the annual budget with continuing resolutions for 3-4 years, and ran up EIGHT TRILLION $ in new debt! If our press could stop picking sides, maybe we could actually #DrainTheSwamp!

All of a sudden Dems are deficit Hawks, when they didn't give a shit about it under Obama.
