Washington, D.C.: Phyllis Schlafly wrote a 2011 column detailing the mistakes of both Republicans and Democrats in Congress and the White House as America struggled to come back from the 2008 financial collapse. The column is titled “Debt Ceiling Up, S&P Rating Down” – August 12, 2011.
“Phyllis Schlafly knew then what we have discovered over and over again,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “It doesn’t matter how much you raise taxes or raise the debt ceiling. We MUST cut spending and cut it significantly if we are to improve our economy. The real solution isn’t these fake stimulus plans, but to get Americans back to work, at real jobs that can sustain a family and pay taxes.
“Phyllis foreshadowed Trump’s political rise it seems even in 2011. She pointed out that Donald Trump seemed to be the only one who was talking sense on jobs, the importance of jobs, and where the good jobs have gone. Trump knew then (like Phyllis) that China was our number-one threat. From so-called free (unfair) trade agreements, theft of technology and patents, and VAT taxes (or tariffs in reality) that were all slanted against the U.S., Globalists in the U.S. have taken us farther down the path of good jobs disappearing than ever before. Thankfully, Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016 and started to face some of those issues head on.”
Schlafly knew then that Trump was willing to face facts. Fake stimulus programs and more debt are no replacement for real economic growth. Read her column in full here.
