Congress GOP WTF?!

Greene Calls For Defaulting On The Debt To Compensate For Making Us All ‘Chinese Slaves’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) wants her party to refuse to fund the federal government and not raise the debt ceiling as a way to prevent every American citizen from becoming a “Chinese slave.”

Greene made her remarks on disgraced former Trump administration official Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast, telling him:

“Stopping them from continuing on with the massive debt that they’re piling on you, the American taxpayer, is so critical. We have to stop the debt ceiling from being raised because Nancy Pelosi and Schumer, they want to continue it for another 15 months so they can ram through the infrastructure bill and the budget.

“In reality, they’re setting up the passage for the Green New Deal, which is in raw form in the budget, the $3.5 trillion budget that is going to enslave all of you to China.”

Bannon interjected that Democrats now “need the deplorables” to pass a budget for the next fiscal year, which led Greene to say:

“Yeah, but let’s keep them shut down. Because what did they do to the American people? How many small businesses closed over Covid? Over 100,000.”

Yeah, let’s put out a raging fire by pouring gasoline on it! Great idea, huh? Only if you’re a Republican and don’t give two hoots in hell in what such a move would do to the national and world economy.

Greene’s comments even elicited an unhinged rant from Bannon, who began shouting as he declared:

“You’re not going to enslave our children! Right now, they’re Russian serfs because of what you’ve done. Now they’re going to be debt slaves! We’re not going to do it. You’re not going to be a debt slave. Your children are not going to be debt slaves. Your grandchildren are not going to be debt slaves because in September-October of 2021 we called their bluff!”

Bannon is so mentally deranged that he’s mixing his metaphors: Russian serfs and Chinese debt slaves. Makes you wonder if he drinks heavily. God knows he looks like he does.

So the Republican strategy for dealing with keeping the United States on the road to economic recovery goes like this: Refuse to do anything and let the entire world go to hell in a handbasket. Then they can blame Biden and pretend they had nothing to do with it.

Some people just want to watch the world burn. They’re called Republicans.
