Deficit, all of fiscal year 2015: $439 billion.

Deficit, first SIX MONTHS of fiscal 2019: $746 billion.
Annualized: $1.49 trillion.

Yes, the GOP has added $1 trillion to the annual deficit. But they screamed food for children was too expensive in 2015 because of deficits.
...they had a trillion dollars available for billionaires, but not money for the Children Health Insurance Plan in fiscal 2018.

I do not understand this kind of inhumanity - and then they run off to church and call themselves "good christians."
...they scream now that there is just no money for treating immigrants held in cages with basic human decency, so people like @tedcruz say "Oh, let's take donations from humans who aren't billionaires."

But they had a trillion for billionaires....
@tedcruz ...they said now they had no money to continue tracking the collapse of honey bee hives, which leads to the pollination literally at the foundation of every third bite of food. Without honey bees, our food system will collapse.

...but they had a trillion for billionaires.
