Rosendale Concerned About Federal Debt…Sometimes.

Question: What do you call someone who called our national debt “just absolutely disgraceful” and then later jumped at the opportunity to support legislation that will add $1.5 trillion to the deficit?
 
Answer: Wealthy real estate developer Matt Rosendale.
 
In 2013, in announcing his run for Congress (which he lost), Rosendale called the federal debt “just absolutely disgraceful” and one that is being passed on to people’s grandchildren.

So, what’s changed? Is it that Rosendale’s party is behind the legislation? Or that this plan is a tax break for wealthy real estate developers like himself?
 
A nonpartisan analysis showed that even with economic growth, there would still be $1 trillion added to the national debt, and no analysis out there shows anything close to a deal that is deficit neutral.
