Crisis Averted

I haven’t posted for a few weeks, but I’ve been closely watching the US inching closer to a disastrous dumb default. Listening to popular news media, you would have been bombarded by continuous bullshit from the “Freedom Caucus” and Donald Trump saying that a default would be a good thing (TM). And complaints that Joe Biden wasn’t doing anything to solve the problem.

And yet, somehow magically, the problem was solved. Done. Biden has signed the bill, a whole two days before the world economy would start crashing on Monday.

Most importantly, the Freedom Caucus showed that it just wants attention, but was a paper tiger, “Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

The good news? Bipartisan government is back. And Biden knew what he was doing. The far-right Republicans won’t be able to pull this stunt again for at least 2 years.

To be honest. not only this is win for just Biden, Democrats, it is win for country ofcourse and more importantly it is huge win for most republicans as we dont have to worry about it for 2 years and wont be part of stupid election issue. It would have been big issue on republican neck
